On this page you will find information relating to public consultation and engagement we have conducted.
Formal public consultations
The future of the NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)
During July and August of 2017, in partnership with NHS Birmingham South Central CCG and NHS Solihull CCG, we ran a consultation on the future of the NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Groups.
Overall, the majority of consultation responses were in support of a full merger of the three CCGs. A full merger is now being progressed with the new CCG to cover Birmingham and Solihull to begin 1 April 2018.
Mental health recovery and employment services
From March to May 2017, in partnership with NHS Birmingham South Central CCG and NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG we ran a consultation on changes to mental health day services..
We have now considered all of the feedback and would like to share how we have incorporated it into our plans.

Non-emergency patient transport (NEPT)
During the summer of 2015, in partnership with NHS Birmingham South Central CCG, NHS Solihull CCG and NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG, we ran a consultation about creating one universal service for all patients across Birmingham, Solihull and Sandwell.
Following the consultation and the procurement process West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust will be providing a new non-emergency patient transport service from 1 May 2017.
Minor eye conditions service
We are currently working on a minor eye conditions service project. We have been engaging with the Birmingham Sight Loss Council, as well as the Thomas Pocklington Trust and some local member of the partially sighted community. More information on this project will be available soon.
Following this, we created information leaflets to advise patients of the way in which repeat prescriptions would work in the future. For more information about this, click here.
Transforming care for people with a learning disability and autism
Since the Transforming care programme began we have undertaken a number of engagement activities with patients, carers, families and stakeholders. Our first large scale engagement event looked at what was working well and what could be improved for the future. View the event report here.
Another piece of engagement has been about informing the new service model development. In partnership with The Weaver and Young Foundation we engaged with parents with lived experience of current services. View the engagement report here.
