Your local NHS Commissioners
Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for commissioning the majority of healthcare for the people of Birmingham including GPs, acute hospitals, community and mental health services.
Some families live on the border between Solihull and Birmingham and can experience difficulties accessing health services because they can be slightly different depending on the area. The CCG has worked with parent-carers and health partners across Birmingham and Solihull to develop principles to apply in these situations as a move towards a more borderless system.
