Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group, the organisation responsible for patients’ health in the local area has been rated ‘outstanding’ by NHS England.
The organisation was awarded the ‘outstanding’ rating by NHS England, which has a statutory duty (under the Health and Social Care Act (2012)) to conduct an annual assessment of every CCG.
We are pleased to announce that following a lengthy, thorough and robust procurement process we have awarded contracts for the provision of 111 and OOH integrated care services for the next 4 years with options to extend for a further 2 years. This will bring a period of stability and opportunity to develop patient centred integrated urgent care services across the West Midlands.
Alongside existing contracts in the region, all new services will be covered by an overarching alliance agreement that unites all providers towards the common goal of delivering truly integrated, seamless services for our patients.
Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG commission or buy local healthcare services and one of these is your local GP practice at Newtown Health Centre. You may be aware that we are working with your GP practice to further improve services to you and your family. These plans include a potential opportunity to relocate Newtown Health Centre to a new, modern state of the art building on land on the corner of Wheeler Street and Gerrard Street, opposite the entrance to the Holte School.
As your local Clinical Commissioning Group we have a responsibility to inform and consult you on the proposed changes.
Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG are carrying out a review with mothers and families to improve the community midwifery care in your local area.
