‘The immediate advantage of bringing health and social care professionals together will be the face-to-face conversations they can have around the patients and families they are supporting. It will enable us, as a CCG, to ensure our population receives the right interventions at the right time,’ said Steven Marshall Director of Strategy and Transformation at Wolverhampton CCG.
