Not enough people with asthma are being vaccinated against the flu virus in the Black Country, despite being eligible for a free jab on the NHS.
Almost 200 people were screened for Latent TB (tuberculosis) at Sandwell College as part of a campaign to protect the health of people living in Sandwell and West Birmingham.
Mrs Baldev Ahluwalia, who lives in Sandwell, is just one of 7,485* people at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes in the West Midlands.
