Your patient voice is at the heart of everything we do in the CCG and our Engagement team actively encourage everyone to get involved.

The Sandwell and West Birmingham patients, public partners and communities are really important in developing and shaping healthcare services.  We really value your input and views and encourage you to talk with our staff, take part in consultations, attend public meetings and especially take part in our Patient Network meetings.

To facilitate members of the public taking part in specific topic meetings organised by the CCG, a new Patient Voice - Travel Expenses Policy has been produced which will come into operation as from the 1st April 2018. 

Our Patient Involvement Model explains more about how your involvement works at every level of our organisation from attending your local PPG at your GP practice to our Governing Body meetings.

There are various ways for you to take part and give us your views:

Join the Patients Association on Monday 3 December

Posted in Get Involved

Join the Patients Association on Monday 3 December for a free half day workshop on child health and information.

  • What is important to you when you need help and advice for your child?
  • Have you looked online when your child has been ill?

We would love you to come along and have your say. The session runs from 09:45-14:00 in Birmingham city centre. Lunch and travel expenses are provided.

Many people access information about health and care online, but it sometimes can be misleading and difficult to separate out the facts. This is especially the case when it comes to child’s health, which can be a particularly stressful time.
