GPs in Sandwell and West Birmingham have overwhelmingly voted to retain the current commissioning boundary of their local clinical commissioning group - Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG.
At an extraordinary meeting today (26 June 2019), the CCG's Governing Body heard that 71% of GP members had chosen to remain as a single CCG covering Sandwell, Perry Barr and Ladywood with a view to becoming part of a single commissioning voice for the Black Country and West Birmingham.
Patients and the public are invited to our next governing body meeting which takes place on Wednesday 3 July 2018 from 1.45pm – 4.00pm at Cradley Heath Community Centre, Reddal Hill Road, Cradley Heath, B64 5JG.
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.
