Welcome

Metal Telford sign

Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group is responsible for the healthcare of local people.

Our members are the doctors in the 17 GP Practices in the district.

We are responsible for buying a whole range of health services that you don’t get directly from your GP – like hospital appointments or home visits from a community nurse.

We work with a range of local partners, and we also want patients to get involved in how services develop.

Care with Confidence Awards 2016 Announced

Eight winners have been announced at Telford and Wrekin’s second Care with Confidence Awards.

This year the Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group awards attracted a record number of 35 nominations. The awards recognise those organisations, teams and individuals who go above and beyond to deliver health related services across Telford and Wrekin.

Five winners scooped Care with Confidence Awards

  • Age UK Donnington Day Centre Volunteer Team
  • Paul Gallagher and Kath Livingstone – A Better Care Tomorrow
  • Simon Tooth - Big Reds House
  • Parents Opening Doors (PODS) - Parent Carer Forum

And three scooped special recognitions awards.

  • Outstanding Achievement Award Winner – Sara Bennett, Jayne Sargent Foundation
  • Outstanding Achievement Award Winner – Telford After Care Team (TACT) Volunteers
  • Lifetime Achievement Award – Janet Groves, Drugs Anonymous Movement

The other nominees have all been presented with a certificate of achievement. The criteria behind the Care with Confidence awards, which were held after the CCG’s Annual General Meeting have been driven by the 6C’s but have been expanded to include 12 other areas that the Telford and Wrekin Patient Health Round Table felt were important. Entries were judged, based on the evidence, provided in the nomination form, which reflected one or more of the CCG’s 18Cs, (which are: Care, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, Communication, Competence, Consideration, Credibility, Culture, Contingency, Commissioning, Confidentiality, Comforting, Common sense, Confidence, Creative, Clarity, Co-ordination).

Dr Jo Leahy, Chair of the CCG said:  “We had some fantastic nominations from across the health and care sector including both individuals and teams at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, voluntary organisations, not for profit organisations as well as charities and it was really difficult to choose our eventual winners, as the standard was just so high.

She added: “To see so many people here tonight to celebrate all those who have gone and above and beyond to deliver health and related service for the benefit of our patients is absolutely fantastic. I would like to congratulate all our winners, all those who were nominated and thank all those who took the time to put forward nominations. It’s been an absolute privilege to be involved all our winners and those nominated recognised for all their hard work.”

Photographs of the winners and nominees will soon be available.

Your Rights and Responsibilities

 

Patients in Telford and Wrekin have introduced a series of leaflets and posters which will help people to better understand their rights and their responsibilities when it comes to health care services.

Your rights and responsibilities outline the key themes as set out by the NHS, together with what is expected from the patients as well.

“The NHS ConsTitution is an absolute minefield,” explained GP and Chair, Dr Mike Innes. “It’s a huge document that most people wrestle with in terms of understanding exactly what they are entitled to from the NHS alongside what the NHS should provide for them. We are delighted that the Health roundtable took it upon themselves to break down this information in such a fun and informative way.”

A series of posters have been produced together with a four page leaflet to give people that at-a-glance insight into the workings of the NHS.

Patrick Spreadbury, a member of the T&W Health Roundtable said: “In our role as critical friends to the CCG, it became really obvious to us that the terms laid out in the NHS Constitution were fairly bureaucratic and didn’t explain, in simplistic terms, how these affect people. That’s why we looked through them and picked out some of the key elements that we felt people should know or might find useful and we’re really pleased with the results.”

Younger members of the health roundtable also contributed to the marketing campaign with a #wtf (what’s that for) poster playing on a well-known hashtag that would catch peoples’ attention. The information is also colour coded to help illustrate the difference in what people’s rights are.
