Patients invited to hear how local health services are run in Sandwell and West Birmingham

Text size:
Patients and the public are invited to our next Governing Body Meeting, which takes place on Wednesday 10 January 2018 from 1.45PM – 4.00PM at The Board Room, 2F Kingston House, West Bromwich B70 9LD.

The Governing Body meets monthly to discuss its progress as a CCG and provide an opportunity for local people to see how health services are developing and improving for the benefit of patients.

NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG covers a population of 535,000. The CCG is a membership organisation made up of five Locality Commissioning Groups (LCGs). These LCGs are in close touch with the needs of their local communities and plan to strengthen their engagement with patients.

Dr Nick Harding, Chair of NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG, said:

“We look forward to welcoming patients and the public to our first meeting in 2018. These meetings are an ideal opportunity for local people to hear how we are working to improve health services in Sandwell and West Birmingham.

“It’s important that patients have a much greater say in their healthcare and there are a number of ways that they can do that. Most of our GP practices now have a patient participation group which allows patients to work with the practice to ensure services are meeting the needs of local patients.

“Patients Network Meetings are an open forum of local residents, patients and community groups with an interest in health. It is a place where you can learn more about how we manage resources on behalf of our population. These networks are organised by our Engagement Team. Representatives from each of the PPG groups from local GP practices are actively involved in the Patient networks.

“We have also established Patient Summits, which give clinicians in localities access to a wider network of patients, their carers and organisations who advocate on their behalf.”
