Plans published for better health and care in the Black Country and West Birmingham

Health and social care organisations in the Black Country and West Birmingham are today publishing their proposals to transform local services.

The proposals – known as the Black Country Sustainability and Transformation Plan –involve making some common sense changes to services so that local people get the treatment they need as quickly as possible.  

Andy Williams, Black Country Sustainability and Transformation Plan Lead, says:

“In the Black Country and West Birmingham we have a diverse and changing population and demand for health and care services is growing and evolving. We need to work together to meet these challenges within a tight financial envelope. The Sustainability and Transformation Plan enables us to do this in a way we could not do as individual organisations.
