Planning for the Future
Did you know there is a brand new NHS organisation in Dudley?
Dudley Integrated Health and Care (DIHC) NHS Trust was authorised on 1st April and we bring together
a range of health and care services across Dudley in one single organisation. We have primary care, delivered by 43 practices in Dudley at our heart.
Our work with our GPs and other partners locally will focus on care that is needed by our different communities, recognising that not one size fits all. Over time we will reduce health inequalities and improve healthy life expectancy – helping people to live
longer and healthier lives.
Join our friendly executive team to find out more about our journey, our plans for the future and to hear about the difference we can make together. We will be using Microsoft Teams due to the ongoing restrictions and Government guidelines. Please
book your place with Jess so that we can share the link with you.
Booking is essential!

If you have a communication need and would like to attend one of our events please let us know in advance and we will do our best to ensure this is met.

Healthwatch Dudley, Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group and Dudley Integrated Health and Care NHS Trust joint online forum June 2020 COVID-19: impacts on health and care
Healthwatch Dudley, Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group and Dudley Integrated Health and Care joined forces to host an online forum in response to not being able to meet face to face during the COVID-19 pandemic.
46 people from local communities, health and care settings and voluntary organisations came together as part of a 90-minute Zoom session, to share views and ideas on how they had been accessing services and what the future of health and care in the Dudley borough might look like. The event also included British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreters to enable members of the Deaf community to participate.
During the event, five facilitated breakout room conversations focused on three key questions:
1. What has been working well with getting access to health and care services since lockdown and what difference has it made?
2. What changes would you keep and what are your ideas for making access to health and care services even better moving forward?
3. If you could have changed anything what would it be, were there any barriers to your access to support and have you learned anything new?
Participants were asked to think about:
• What is being done differently
• How services have changed and what change should be permanent
• How people are helping each other and how we can continue to be good neighbours
• How communities can have influence over how organisations and services develop and change
