Connecting Local Voices for Better Health and Care

Are you are working in local health or social care? Do you work with local people who aren’t ordinarily represented at formal meetings? Or are you a patient representative and want to contribute to the ways in which we can collectively listen?

We would love to hear from you!

What if everyone had what they needed to thrive?

We want to hear what you think it’s like to live well in the Black Country & West Birmingham.

The Wider Determinants of Healthy Life Expectancy (WHoLE) Programme is one of the first pieces of work led by the Healthier Futures  Partnership and has produced a report called Working Together for a Healthier Post-COVID Future.

Phase two needs your input as we explore “What if”

Take the opportunity to discuss your ideas with your peers and consider if you lived in a world where everyone in the Black Country & West Birmingham thrived:

What do great communities look like?

What does everyone need to thrive?

How do we get there?

Who would you involve?

Everyone is welcome; service users, patients, families, carers, members of the public, community organisations and more.

Sign up here and join us on 10 December, 10:30am – 12:30pm.

In the meantime, the link to the Healthier Futures website can be found here with more information on the work they are doing.

Urgent Care Services

We want to capture experience of patients using urgent and emergency care services at new cross hospital in order to inform how services could be improved in the future. 

In this 5 minute survey, we will ask how your experiences impacted on the outcome of the care you received, and how your experience could have been improved.

Please click here to complete the survey.

Current engagement and consultations

Upcoming opportunities for the public, patients and other stakeholders to get involved in our engagement and consultations work will be advertised here shortly.
