Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG has developed an exciting new learning and development opportunity for health professionals, front line staff and the public.
Newport Medical Group is proposing to relocate Newport Medical Practice patients to Stoney Lane Surgery and extend this practice which is 800 metres away.
As your local Clinical Commissioning Group we have a responsibility to inform and consult you on the proposed changes. Therefore, we would like to invite you to join us and discuss the proposed plans and get your views on these as well as listening to your questions, concerns or any suggestions that you may have.
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.
