WALSALL CLINICAL COMMISSIONING GROUP Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group is a new and exciting NHS organisation made up of Doctors, Nurses, Managers and Lay Advisors. As a group, we will use our knowledge of local health needs to make sure that public money is spent wisely on purchasing and planning safe, high quality health services for you, the patients. Walsall CCG is responsible for managing some £346 million of your money, and we have to ensure that every penny is spent wisely and effectively to deliver the safest, highest quality healthcare possible for the people of Walsall. We will use the money to commission care from a wide range of providers, including Walsall Hospitals NHS Trust, Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership and the Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. We will be responsible for making sure that these organisations, and anyone else providing healthcare services for local people, keep their patients safe and deliver a high standard of care. As clinical leaders we are committed to working in partnership with patients, the public, healthcare providers and other commissioners to achieve health and wellbeing improvements for the people of Walsall.

Listen to local people: We are committed to involving patients, clinicians and communities in the design and improvement of their services.

Clear accountability and transparency: We value feedback and a clear sense of personal accountability and responsibility. Innovation: We will make best use of all new technology, particularly striving to be at the forefront of innovation in exploitation of information technology. Prevention: We will prevent poor health starting early with families, children and young people.
