A few months ago you will remember that our safeguarding team had a visit from the CQC. The final report is being published on the CQC website shortly.
Overall the feedback for the CCG was good, and this is a reflection of the hard work the Safeguarding team has put in. We have a lot to be proud of, in making safeguarding a priority for everyone. Over the past two years we have strengthened local safeguarding; with increased partnership working through the launch of the multi-agency safeguarding hubs and raising awareness through training and campaigns.
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.
