Dear All,

Please click here to read the Black Country and West Birmingham CCGs first stakeholder newsletter.

It goes without saying that this is a challenging time for local health and care services.

Dudley has always benefited from a strong history of partnership working between the NHS, local government, the wider public sector and local voluntary services. This has provided a strong foundation for our collective response to the impact of COVID -19. Over recent weeks colleagues from the CCG, primary care, community health services the Council and others have:-

  • Worked with local community services to strengthen our end of life pathway;
  • supported our local care homes;
  • been redeployed to support the front line;
  • carried out vital patient testing;
  • developed new means by which patients can access services safely;
  • opened up new facilities;
  • used technology in a creative and innovative fashion;
  • developed new relationships with local businesses to provide PPE.

 

We are entering a difficult phase in the management of the pandemic but we have learnt a number of important lessons which will serve us well as we prepare for the full recovery of local services and the tasks required to maintain the resilience of our community.
