After completing a recent cancer course, Practice Nurses from Solihull have been inspired to make changes to the way they work with cancer patients. Funded by Macmillan, the course was one of 11 pilots across the country, each tailored to suit the needs of the local population.
The eight-month course was largely self-directed with the Nurses asked to gather information and reflect on their experiences, but also attend a face-to-face session each month. Beginning with an introduction to cancer, other topics covered treatment pathways, supporting patients, motivational interviewing and handling difficult conversations.
Solihull people are being urged to help their local healthcare commissioner to improve their services.
Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which designs, plans and funds health services for the people of Solihull, has launched ‘Your Health, Your Voice’ – a campaign to encourage more people to work with the CCG.
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.
