Proposed changes to Prescriptions and Medicines in Sandwell and West Birmingham

This consultation has now closed - to read the consultation report please click here. 

Due to the general election this consultation has been extended by four weeks until Thursday 13 July.

The challenge faced by all NHS organisations is how to spend the available budget in ways that most benefit the health of the whole population and deliver good value-for-money.  We have a duty to ensure that every service we buy on your behalf is delivered to a high standard, is clinically effective and can be provided within our budget.

We are proposing to change the way we ask our GPs to prescribe certain medicines for short-term, minor conditions or where there is no clear health benefit for patients. For example, for medicines to treat minor conditions like coughs and sore throats, you do not always need to visit your GP as these can be bought over the counter from your local community pharmacist.

Your views needed on proposals for improvements in mental health day services

From 1 March 2017 until 26 May 2017, we would like your views on a number of proposed changes to some of the mental health services we buy from third sector organisations.

Third sector organisations are ‘not for profit’ and/or non-governmental. Sometimes these are charities or private organisations.

Improving Day Hospice Services Consultation

This consultation has now closed

Day Hospice services are an important part of End of Life Care and should support patients to live as well as possible in their last months of life. We are passionate about great hospice care for the people of Sandwell and West Birmingham and want services to be the best they can be. A vital part of improving services is listening to, and acting upon the voice of patients and carers.

Outcomes from the Primary Care Listening Exercise

A six week listening exercise was conducted from 1 September 2015 to 16 October 2015 to ensure patients and stakeholders were effectively engaged in reaching the right decision for the local population.

At least 12,943 people were contacted through postal/electronic mailings and discussions took place across 45 engagement events/meetings with approximately 1,540 attendees.

Overall, 264 surveys were completed in response to the listening exercise – 202 were received by post, whilst 62 were completed online. Further anecdotal feedback was captured during wider discussions at the various meetings attended.
