The NHS organisation responsible for planning and buying health services for the residents of Sandwell and West Birmingham is celebrating after scooping a national award – repeating its success from 2013.
Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group was named as Clinical Commissioning Group of the year at the prestigious Health Service Journal Awards held in London on November 18.
As December draws that little bit closer so does the Christmas cheer, and with all the excitement the more everyday things get lost or forgotten. So before the inevitable coughs, colds and flu really get a grip, Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group is urging parents of children between the ages of two and seven to make sure their little ones have their flu nasal vaccination as soon as possible to ensure they are protected for the winter months.
Local groups and organisations that make a difference by reducing health inequalities in their community are being urged to enter Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) Equality Awards 2016.
The awards are for people who are involved in projects taking place in diverse and vulnerable communities, which ensure people or groups are treated fairly and equally.
