A large trust created by a merger of South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare Foundation Trust and Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Partnership Trust went live this week.


The biggest trust in the health service, it is called the Midlands Partnership Foundation Trust.


Annual turnover will be more than £500m, and in addition to healthcare the trust will also provide adult social care services in Staffordshire.
