Give us your views on non-emergency patient transport services

Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group would like to hear your views on proposals for a new non-emergency patient transport service in Birmingham, Solihull and Sandwell.

NHS-funded non-emergency patient transport helps eligible patients, who are unable to travel by private or public transport, get to and from healthcare services, such as routine hospital appointments. For further details click here.

Solihull Practice Nurses inspired to take innovative approaches to cancer support

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.
