In September 2019, the CCG held a celebration event (of the past seven years of the CCG) and the Annual General Meeting which would celebrate all the fantastic achievements and differences made to healthcare locally for patients.
An event was held during the afternoon with each of the twelve teams in the CCG demonstrating what they do in the CCG and their achievements. Agewell came along with their Dementia interactive table and Groundworks came with their smoothie bike to compliment the event.
The event was officially opened by the Worshipful the Mayor of Sandwell, Councillor Dr Ann Jaron. As this was a drop-in event, invites were sent out to the Get involved Membership scheme, GPs, staff, voluntary sector, partners and the members of the public.
- Poetry – Emma Purshouse
- Play by Flo the Dragan (CCGs mascot for Stay Well)
- Agewell; Tai Chi and postural support demonstrations
This event was then followed-on by the Annual General Meeting. The slides for the AGM can be viewed below which gave presentations by the Accountable Officer, Chair and Finance Director.
Following the AGM, the celebrations continued with local entertainment from:
- Choir including CCG staff
- Dancer – Sophie - Sandwell SHAPE
- Bangra performed by singer Izzye and Bangra Smash Up
The whole day was attended by lots of people who even stayed all day for the AGM and evening entertainment.
Comments from people attending the events included:
- I have never been to an AGM like this. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself.
- What a fabulous event. Thank you
