Support group will help patients breathe easy

For over six years, Breathe Easy, part of the British Lung Foundation, has run a successful support group near to the centre of Solihull for people with lung conditions and the people who look after them. Now it is planned to open a second group in the Chelmsley Wood area.

Solihull submits plan to improve health and care services for over 65s

Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Solihull Council have submitted the borough’s first Better Care Fund plan to improve local services for older people.

The Better Care Fund is a national initiative announced by the Government last year to deliver better outcomes and greater efficiencies through more joined up services for older and disabled people.  The £3.8 billion pooled budget for health and care services comes from existing NHS and local authority funds; the Government is not providing any additional funding.  Solihull’s portion of the Fund for 2015/16 is estimated at £15.114m.  This is made up of a £1.395m contribution from Solihull Council and £13.719m from the CCG.
