Unfortunately, Wolverhampton faces a more immediate problem. Our expected spend is increasing quicker than the money we are due to receive. While we should balance the books this year, next year will be very tough and we need to act now in order to continue commissioning safe, high quality care.
In November, the CCG set up a group to look at our entire portfolio of services to ensure they deliver the best possible care and value for patients. The group, including members of the CCG's senior team, GPs, lay members and patient representatives, looks at modern models and pathways of care and will make recommendations where it feels care can be delivered differently.
The group has made some recommendations and we have been asking your thoughts on the possible changes.
Your feedback and results
We created a short document that explained each proposal in more detail, which included a survey to give you the opportunity to share your thoughts on each. This survey closed in April and the feedback has now been analysed and used to help formulate recommendations to this group.
Download the 'Help shape future services' results so far to find out where we are with these recommendations.
You said, we did
From this page you can learn what we have done following engagement or consultation work. Listening and acting upon the feedback that patients and the public have taken time and effort to share is very important to us. We want to use this page to show how the CCG's decison-making has been enhanced by talking and listening to local people.

Sickle Cell and Thalassemia
The survey closed on 21 August 2017. We will update this page once results are publically available. Thank you to all who participated in our engagement exercise.
Some of the help and support for Sickle Cell and Thalassemia is paid for by the CCG. Some of it is paid for by other NHS organisations. We asked you about the help and support that the CCG may need to pay for. We asked for your views (via a survey) as patients and members of the public about the following:
- The information that is available to the public about Sickle Cell and Thalassemia.
- The advice and counselling that parents are offered as part of the screening process
- The long-term support offered to people with the conditions
We also asked people who are affected by Sickle Cell and Thalassemia what they think is important to help them keep healthy and how that support could be provided. Some will have used the services which are available or know someone who has. We would like you to tell us your views about those services to help us decide which ones work best.
