During the coronavirus pandemic, Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been exploring new ways to keep in touch with local people. The regular Citizen Forums – which were previously held as face-to-face meetings – are now being held virtually via live video conferencing.
Dr Ian Sykes, the CCG’s clinical chair, has been leading these monthly virtual briefing sessions to provide local people with an update on the CCG’s work, including updates on primary care (GP practices) and other local healthcare. These sessions also provide participants an opportunity to submit questions before and during the session to be answered by Dr Sykes and other CCG staff.
The next online Citizen Forum will take place on Thursday 18 June, 2 pm to 3 pm.
Patients, Citizen Forum members and other stakeholders are welcome to join these sessions to get an update on the CCG’s work in Sandwell. Agendas for the sessions will be available soon.
To find out more and to sign up to join one of the online forums, please call 0121 612 1447 or email Swbccg.firstname.lastname@example.org. Please give your email or postal address and you will sent joining instructions nearer the date.
