A spokesperson for NHS Birmingham and Solihull CCG and NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG said: “We are very fortunate and proud to have good and high-quality general practice across Birmingham and Solihull.
“However, we recognise that workforce is our biggest challenge and are working extremely hard with our colleagues in general practice to develop solutions to address this; embracing new technology and innovation will be a key part of this.
Sandwell and West Birmingham residents are being urged to spot the signs of child trafficking. Our CCG is raising awareness of the warning signs and how residents can take action.
The innovative work that is being done to support medically qualified refugees to make a key contribution to the local NHS is being highlighted during Refugee Week by NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group.
