Response to GP at Hand expansion

A spokesperson for NHS Birmingham and Solihull CCG and NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG said: “We are very fortunate and proud to have good and high-quality general practice across Birmingham and Solihull.

“However, we recognise that workforce is our biggest challenge and are working extremely hard with our colleagues in general practice to develop solutions to address this; embracing new technology and innovation will be a key part of this.

“With this in mind, our GPs will be providing a digital offer to all patients in Birmingham and Solihull; this will include an App, which will enable patients to connect with their own family doctor, quickly and easily.

“The local NHS is working hard to make accessing services more convenient and responsive for everyone, as we recognise the differing needs of the 1.3 million people across our area.”
