The NHS is undergoing a major transformation following the publication of The NHS Long Term Plan and future vision of Integrated Care Systems.
Therefore, CCGs across the country are looking at how they are best placed to take on the role of strategic commissioners in this new NHS landscape. This also includes recommendations that there should only be one strategic commissioning organisation in each Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).
Shropshire CCG and Telford and Wrekin CCG are now developing a proposal for a new organisational model to meet this new strategic commissioning approach.
Both Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin want your views now on proposals for a new health organisation.
A successful Stakeholder Event was held in Shrewsbury on Friday 24th January 2020, where patient representatives and members of the voluntary sector came together to listen to the proposals for the new organisation.
Shropshire residents are being asked to complete an online survey or to come along to one of the pop-up events to talk to the CCG teams about the changes they are planning, ask any questions, and give their feedback.
