Keeping you engaged during Covid-19: our online Citizen Forums Posted on 25 Jan 2022

During the coronavirus pandemic, the CCG has been exploring new ways to keep in touch with local people. Our regular Citizen Forums – which were previously held as face-to-face meetings – are now being held virtually via live video conferencing.

Dr Ian Sykes, the CCG’s clinical chair, has been leading these monthly virtual briefing sessions to provide local people with an update on the CCG’s work, including updates on primary care and other local healthcare. These sessions also provide participants an opportunity to submit questions before and during the session to be answered by Dr Sykes and other CCG staff.

The next online Citizen Forums will take place as follows:

Thursday 18 June, 10am to 11am: Ladywood and Perry Barr Citizen Forum

Thursday 18 June, 2pm to 3pm: Sandwell Citizen Forum

Patients, Citizen Forum members and other stakeholders are welcome to join these sessions to get an update on the CCG’s work in Ladywood and Perry Barr and in Sandwell. Agendas for the sessions will be available soon.

To find out more and to sign up to join one of the online forums, please call 0121 612 1447 or email  Please give your email or postal address and we will send you joining instructions nearer the date.
