We've had a great response to the inaugural awards with a total of 54 individuals, teams and organisations nominated from the public, private and voluntary sectors as well as members of the public.
Please join us at the Awards Ceremony on Thursday 19 March, 1.30pm – 4.00pm at the Renewal Conference Centre, Lode Lane and help us to celebrate the work of the finalists and winners who are improving the quality of life for Solihull's older residents.
Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group and Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust respective Governing Boards have reaffirmed their commitment to providing an Urgent Care Centre within the Solihull Hospital site.
Today's (4 March 2014) decision follows a rethink about the location of the centre – which was originally proposed to be within the accident and emergency department. However, investigations over the last few months revealed structural and operational problems in that area, which caused a delay in progressing plans until a new site was identified.
Nominations are now open for the inaugural Solihull – Together for Better Lives awards. The awards recognise individuals and organisations who are working together to make life better for Solihull residents. They have been created by a partnership of local health and social care organisations: Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Solihull Council, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Solihull’s primary care providers, the voluntary and community sector and lay members representing the Solihull community.
