Hello and I hope my message meets you in the best of health and looking forward to the Christmas holidays.
Here at Walsall CCG we have had a very busy period over the past three months. Last month we had a fantastic turnout at the pop-up shop in the saddlers centre with over 600 people coming through the doors. As well as having their blood pressure taken, they also shared their views and opinions on the future of the NHS and on the programmes of work that Walsall CCG are undertaking.
In September we held a number of lively, interesting prioritisation events where we asked patients and members of the public to think like commissioners and use some of the tools we use when making decisions. There was a great turnout for both sessions.
The right care – Choose Well
We have an agreed approach to maintain safe and effective safeguarding services and to strengthen arrangements for safeguarding children and adults at risk across Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Our strategy is currently being reviewed and updated and will be available on this site from Dec 2013, this will include our key priorities for 2013-15.
More information is available via the following web links:
Walsall residents visiting the Saddlers Centre next week will be able to pick up health information and advice at Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) health pop-up shop.
The pop-up shop will be open on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th October from 10am to 4pm on the ground floor of the Saddlers Centre (next to Timpsons).
Health professionals will be available during the two-day event to do blood pressure and weight checks, as well as advise visitors on how to keep fit and healthy over the winter period.
