September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month and this year’s aim is to raise awareness of the symptoms of blood cancers, which can often be confused with flu. Health leaders from NHS Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are encouraging people to become more aware of the three main blood cancer types; multiple myeloma, leukaemia and lymphoma by getting involved in this year’s campaign.
The three clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Birmingham and Solihull have agreed to develop a new single commissioning organisation by April 2018, subject to approval from NHS England.
NHS Birmingham CrossCity, Birmingham South Central and Solihull CCGs are undertaking the work in a bid to deliver significant improvements to health and wellbeing for the people of Birmingham and Solihull.
Friends and family of older people in Solihull are being urged by health leaders at NHS Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to look out for the early symptoms of Alzheimers so they can benefit from the support that is available.
