Patients and the public are being given the chance to get an insight into what is involved in managing a multi-million pound budget in commissioning health care services for more than half a million people.
The NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Annual General Meeting takes place at 6.00pm on Tuesday 4 September 2018 at West Bromwich Albion Football Ground.
Patients and the public are being invited to share their experiences and can find out more about how they can get involved in shaping future health services.
During the AGM, health leaders will be showcasing key achievements through partnership and innovation that have resulted in a step-change in local health over the last 12 months.
Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG is a membership organisation of 85 GP practices serving 570,124 patients across the Sandwell and West Birmingham area.
Dr Nick Harding, Chair of NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG, said:
“We look forward to meeting with patients and the public at this year’s AGM. This is an ideal opportunity for local people to find out more about the innovative ways we are seeking to improve the health of local people in the long term. Our partnership working through successful initiatives, such as the Better Care Fund and Continuing Healthcare, has delivered significant improvements in clinical outcomes for patients.
“Everyone who attends can also hear how they can get personally involved in shaping the future of health in Sandwell and West Birmingham. Listening to patients is vital so that we can commission services that truly reflect their needs. We look forward to hearing from patients first-hand about their own experiences of local health services over the last 12 months.”
