The leaders of Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have today underlined their commitment to providing an Urgent Care Centre on the Solihull Hospital site to create a more integrated approach to urgent care in Solihull.
Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (HEFT) runs Solihull Hospital and its new Chief Executive Andrew Foster met with the Dr Patrick Brooke, Accountable Officer for Solihull CCG on the site which is set to house the planned Urgent Care Centre.
It was celebrations all round yesterday as organisers announced the winners of the inaugural Solihull Together for Better Lives awards at an inspiring ceremony in the Renewal Conference Centre.
The awards, developed to recognise and celebrate outstanding work by individuals and organisations in Solihull to support older people in the community, were held in the presence of the Mayor, Cllr Mrs Kate Wild and awards host Les Lawrence, Chairman of the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust Board.
A temporary GP walk-in centre will open in Chelmsley Wood over the Easter weekend.
Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has funded the service to be run from The Chelmsley Wood Primary Care Centre, Crabtree Drive, Chelmsley Wood B37 5BU.
