NHS commissioning staff honoured for year of dedication

Staff have been honoured for their hard work and dedication when local NHS commissioners held their annual awards.

The staff awards were held jointly by Cannock Chase, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula and Stafford & Surrounds Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) at County Buildings, Stafford.

They were held on the theme of the CCGs values; we are honest, accessible and we listen, care and respect for all, quality is our day job and we innovate and deliver.

Cancer awareness: Don’t be scared of the diagnosis

A cancer diagnosis was the last thing Stafford resident Paul Giles expected at 57 years old. After a long career with the RAF, Paul was a keen sportsman who kept himself fit and healthy.  Even after leaving the Forces would think nothing of cycling 30 miles at a time.

“I’d never seen the inside of a hospital before.  I never smoked, drank only moderately and exercised five or six times a week – I was in the gym right up until the night before I was diagnosed – but all that is never going to prevent you from getting something like cancer.  Cancer takes no prisoners,” said Paul.
