We are committed to working in partnership with a number of NHS and non-NHS organisations, to ensure local delivery of services and their development in accordance with national guidance and local needs. These partner organisations include NHS trusts such as hospitals, mental health providers, City of Wolverhampton Council, educational establishments, police, probation, the private sector, the Third Sector and not-for profit and community groups.
Each year a survey is sent out by Ipsos Mori to our stakeholders and partners to enable them to provide feedback about us. This is called a 360 Stakeholder Survey.

Transforming Care Engagement for Children and Young People
The Black Country Transforming Care Partnership is holding two workshops to shape services for children and young people with learning disabilities (or learning disabilities with autism) with behaviour that challenges. To shape these services, we need to hear from people who have lived experience, as you will know best what is needed!
We would like your help to develop the component parts of a service (what are the ‘things’ that should be done) that could be wrapped around a child/young person and their family, and support them to live in their homes and communities and lead a good life.
During the event, participants will work in small groups with a facilitator who will take you through a series of questions that aim to help you tell us what things should make up care services at different points of a child’s or young person’s life. Outputs from the workshop will be used to shape a framework for what services should look like and will guide development of services for the future.
Details of the workshops can be found below:

NHS organisations from across the Black Country and West Birmingham have introduced a number of successful workforce schemes that support GPs to stay in general practice and helps improve services for local patients.
A celebration event held in Wolverhampton this week highlighted how promoting new ways of working and offering additional support to local GPs and their practices was having a positive impact on GP retention in the Black Country and West Birmingham. The workforce schemes offer training opportunities, flexible working and promote networks for newly qualified GPs and GP trainees.
