About health and social care

Health and social care is the treatment of ill health and medical conditions in hospitals, health centres and in the community. Social care is the care and support of vulnerable people, usually in the community.

Here in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, social care services are provided by our two leading local authorities, Staffordshire County Council and Stoke-on-Trent City Council.  

If you or someone you know needs help with day-to-day living because of illness or disability, then to access your local social care services and to understand your options and where you can get support, visit your council website:
