The CCG regards diabetes as an important priority and over the last 12 months a significant piece of work has been undertaken to redesign and improve the diabetic care pathway for patients. Structured patient education has been identified as one of the key areas for review. Currently all patients with newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetes are offered a referral to an education session. The referral is made by the patient’s GP or Practice Nurse. Sessions are undertaken by a Diabetes Specialist Dietician and are either group sessions or one-to-one appointments.
Join us at one of our forthcoming workshops to help test, challenge and shape the future commissioning directions of the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) across Birmingham & Solihull.
These events are an opportunity for the public, our patients, service providers and wider partners to learn more about our direction of travel, our key workstream areas and our commissioning intentions for 2017-2019.
This year we are hosting our workshops collectively in parallel with the development of a new commissioning organisation for Birmingham & Solihull and the emerging Sustainability & Transformation Plan (STP).
Health leaders at Solihull NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are calling on men and women in Solihull to become Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to help raise awareness of men’s health this ‘Movember’.
Movember has been taking place across the world for the last 13 years, with men growing a moustache for the full 30 days of November; whether struggling to grow anything on their upper line, or extending it to create unique and random styles. This wacky idea brings to the forefront the most serious issues relating to men’s health, specifically, prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
