Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG's Celebration and AGM 2019


Patients, the public, partners and stakeholders are all invited to a special event which marks seven years of health improvements in Sandwell and West Birmingham.

The celebrations, which have been organised by NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), take place from 12 Noon – 7pm on Thursday 5 September 2018 at West Bromwich Albion Football Ground.

Local GP and The Worshipful Mayor of Sandwell, Councillor Dr Ann Jaron, will be officially opening the celebrations at midday.

The event will be staged in two parts with a celebratory ‘drop in’ event from 12 noon – 3pm; and then the CCG’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) event taking place from 4pm – 7pm. Everyone is invited to attend the whole day, but people will need to book their place at the AGM event in advance by contacting the CCG’s engagement team on 0121 612 1447 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The ‘drop in’ fun event will include healthy stage shows, quizzes and games, and will include appearances from Flo the Friendly Dragon and her wizard companion, Baggie Bird and some elaborate nurse characters. There will also be Tai chi demonstrations and exercises around postural stability.
Sophie Rose De-Bear will be performing during the evening’s live entertainment. The 17-year-old student from George Salter Academy in West Bromwich wowed judges with her sensational, thought-provoking dance performance on the impact of knife crime at the Sandwell SHAPE Your Talent contest.

Against the backdrop of change, the CCG has consistently improved the patient experience since the organisation was formed in 2012. The CCG maintained a ‘good’ rating in NHS England’s end of year annual assessment for 2018/19.

Dr Ian Sykes, Chair of NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG, said:

“We look forward to welcoming patients, the public, our partners and other key stakeholders to our celebration event and hope that they enjoy the entertainment that is being provided by talented local people. This is an ideal opportunity for local people to meet with us and find out about the key achievements that have resulted in a step-change in local health.

“As a CCG we can look back on pioneering changes which are now being introduced nationally to give patients access to more services in their communities. A key success as a CCG has been our strong partnership working. We have made great strides in our journey to integrate health and social care – locally, across Sandwell and West Birmingham and on a wider footprint, across Birmingham and the Black Country.”

Measles warning for young adults attending summer festivals

Young adults in Sandwell and West Birmingham planning to attend summer festivals are being urged to make sure they’re up to date with their measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) jabs. The plea has been issued by NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) as measles and mumps cases across England continue to rise.

Mass gathering events like festivals can be hot spots for measles and mumps as they present the perfect opportunity for the infection to spread. There has recently been an increase in measles and mumps cases across England, particularly in young people and children. There are also several large measles outbreaks across Europe.
