The number of people following Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group’s Twitter account has passed the 1,000 mark.
The account, which launched in July 2012, shares useful health advice as well as publicising opportunities for people to take part in consultation events.
Chair of the CCG and local GP, Dr Nick Harding, said: “We realise the huge importance that social media plays in engaging with people in our local areas and further afield. I hope that our following continues to grow.”
The CCG is keen to build its following, as another channel to involve residents in their local NHS. The CCG hopes that, by building its following, more people will ask questions, suggest new ideas for innovation, and find out more about the work of the CCG.
