Today is World COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) Day – focusing on raising awareness and standards of care for people with the condition around the globe.
Organised by the Global Initiative for COPD, this year's theme is 'It's Not Too Late' and Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG is encouraging people to take action to improve respiratory health, regardless of whether they have COPD.
The NHS111 service which was launched in the West Midlands last year as an enquiry number for urgent health queries is seeking willing participants to review the service.
The free seasonal flu vaccine is now available for eligible people in Sandwell and West Birmingham.
With winter approaching, the NHS is urging residents to get protected at their local surgery by booking their free flu vaccine. Don’t wait until the bad weather, book your appointment today.
Hear from Dr Will Murdoch of Vitality Partnership about the benefits from getting the flu vaccination.
Thank you to everyone who came along to our inaugural Annual General Meeting on Thursday 11 September. We had a fantastic turnout with over 160 people present. It was a real opportunity to reflect on everything we have achieved in our first year. If you were not able to attend, take a look at our presentation and short films that were shown on the evening.
