Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group and Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust respective Governing Boards have reaffirmed their commitment to providing an Urgent Care Centre within the Solihull Hospital site.
Today's (4 March 2014) decision follows a rethink about the location of the centre – which was originally proposed to be within the accident and emergency department. However, investigations over the last few months revealed structural and operational problems in that area, which caused a delay in progressing plans until a new site was identified.
Nominations are now open for the inaugural Solihull – Together for Better Lives awards. The awards recognise individuals and organisations who are working together to make life better for Solihull residents. They have been created by a partnership of local health and social care organisations: Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Solihull Council, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Solihull’s primary care providers, the voluntary and community sector and lay members representing the Solihull community.
With ice and freezing temperatures set to continue for much of this week, doctors in Solihull are offering advice to people aged 65 and over on how to keep warm and well.
