As part of our commitment to engage with a wide range of communities within Birmingham and Solihull, we are working closely with the Patient Health Forum.
The group, based in Stirchley, is open to anyone living with a long term health condition in Birmingham, which could be anything from asthma to arthritis or Alzheimer’s to anxiety.
People with long-term health conditions can be vulnerable to social isolation. The Patient Health Forum gives a great opportunity for people from a wide range of backgrounds to get together with others and talk about their health condition, as well as give their feedback on local health services.
By talking directly to patients with long-term conditions, we are able to ask them to help us design, improve and review health services, enabling them to draw upon their own experiences and expertise.
The CCG works in partnership with Gateway Family Services, a non-profit community interest company which supports the committee of the Patient Health Forum.
Membership of the Patient Health Forum is open to anyone who lives in Birmingham, or is registered with a Birmingham GP, and lives with a long-term health condition.
