Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has recently recruited their third apprentice since forming in 2013. Working in partnership with local colleges, the CCG were delighted by the number of young people keen to secure an apprenticeship with the NHS.

Patients of the new Croft Medical Centre in Chelmsley Wood only have a matter of months before they can utilise the brand new facilities offered at the Centre.
Formerly known as Craig Croft Medical Centre, the new building nears completion – with an opening date of 30 November 2015.
Staff and patients can look forward to moving into a new, spacious, two-storey building. The space will be dominated by the General Practice, with an area for the local Clinical Commissioning Group, which will strengthen working relationships between the health commissioner and local doctors.
The local CCG will also work with the local authority regarding their extensive regeneration plans - a good example of local government, local community and NHS coming together.
At Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) we are continually aiming to improve services for patients and offering care where and when you want it.
Practice staff have highlighted to the CCG that patients may be interested in having consultations with their GP practice via video-calling. In response to this we welcome your views as we consider implementing this facility.
Please share your thoughts through this online survey before Friday 9 October 2015. Practices will notify their patients if and when this facility becomes available.
