SWB CCG has partnered with Living Well Taking Control (LWTC) to offer individuals at risk of Type 2 diabetes a place on the new Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

In Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull, people recruited on to the new programme tackling Type 2 diabetes will benefit from a partnership between Health Exchange CIC and Westbank Community Health and Care, collectively known as known as Living Well Taking Control LLP, to help them make healthier lifestyle choices and reduce their risk of developing the disease.

Health experts urge the public to stay safe in the sun

With the unpredictable mix of ‘British’ weather so far, it’s all too easy to forget that summer’s almost here.  But just because the sun isn’t shining it doesn’t mean that you’re safe from the sun’s harmful rays.  So, to tie in with Sun Awareness Week (9 – 16 May), NHS health experts are offering safety advice to the public to keep them safe in the sun.

Introduction of revalidation for nurses and midwives a ‘major success’

The introduction of revalidation for nurses and midwives has been a major success, with the majority of those due to renew their registration revalidating successfully.

Latest figures show 90.48% percent (14,362) of the 15,873 due to revalidate in April have successfully renewed their registration through revalidation and only 1,401 have left the register. This is in line with the number of registrants we would normally expect to leave the register in any given April.

Outcomes from the Primary Care Listening Exercise

This work has now been completed

A six week listening exercise was conducted from 1 September 2015 to 16 October 2015 to ensure patients and stakeholders were effectively engaged in reaching the right decision for the local population.

At least 12,943 people were contacted through postal/electronic mailings and discussions took place across 45 engagement events/meetings with approximately 1,540 attendees.

Overall, 264 surveys were completed in response to the listening exercise – 202 were received by post, whilst 62 were completed online. Further anecdotal feedback was captured during wider discussions at the various meetings attended.
