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.

Malling Health Wrekin Engagement

Malling Health Wrekin Site

Telford & Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) wish to inform you of possible changes to Malling Health Wrekin in the future.

The reason why there may be changes is due to the type of contract used to set up Malling Health Wrekin in 2009.  This is known as an Alternative Provider Medical Services (APMS) Contract and comes to an end in July 2017.  This is different to all other GP Practices in Telford and Wrekin who have a General Medical Services (GMS) Contract which is not time limited.  The other difference is that the Malling Health Wrekin contract delivers GP services to a registered patient list and also provides a GP walk-in service for the whole population of Telford and Wrekin. 

The CCG would now like to gather the views of individuals who are registered patients at Malling Health Wrekin.  We would like to know about the factors that influence your choice of GP Practice before we decide whether to retender the contract (the process by which we select who provides care) or consider reallocating patients to other GP practices across Telford. 

If you are a patient registered at Malling Health Wrekin, we would like to invite you to share your views by completing an online survey available at http://tinyurl.com/imh-malling-wrekin-survey

   If you prefer to complete a paper survey or to share your views via telephone, please contact the Patient Services Team on 01952 580478 or email twccg.patientservices@nhs.net

If you would prefer to share your opinions with an independent organisation, you can also contact Healthwatch Telford and Wrekin (the independent consumer champion for health and social care in this area) on 01952 739540 or email info@healthwatchtelfordandwrekin.co.uk

This engagement process will take place between Monday 14th November and Friday 16th December 2016.  We will then consider the information gathered to inform the decision on the future provision of services and a decision is expected to be made by the end of January 2017.

All completed surveys must be received before midnight on 16 December 2016

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.
