How has the NHS changed?• Primary Care Trusts are closing in 2013• GPs have formed Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)• To support these new CCGs and strengthen health and social care services, when also having to make significant efficiency savings, the current PCTs and local councils have formed the Birmingham and Solihull Cluster• As the NHS continues to change, new strategic bodies are being set up offering more opportunities to get involved.
  • 3. New strategic bodiesThe Health and Wellbeing Board will:Promote public health, health improvements and tackle health inequalitiesStrengthen relationships between health and social care, agree priorities and encourage commissioners to work in a more joined up way.help give communities a greater say in understanding and addressing their health and social care needs.The National Commissioning Board will: ensure that the NHS delivers better outcomes for patients andcommunities within its available resources.Provide clinical leadership and support to CCGsInvolve patients & the public and promote choice
  • 4.
