October 2019

Dear Patient,

We are writing to you as a patient of Five Ways Health Centre

As you may be aware, NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG buys local healthcare services on behalf of the local population, and one of the services we are responsible for purchasing is the GP Surgery at Five Ways Health Centre.

Five Ways Health Centre was rated as ‘inadequate’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in February 2018 and was placed into ‘special measures’.
The CQC is the independent regulator of health and social care in England, with the purpose to make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care.

Following on from the letter that we sent to you in September 2019 informing you that Five Ways Health Centre had permanently closed, we now want to take the opportunity to listen to your views on the two options available to the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), this is to either:
• Disperse the Practice List: which means that the CCG will work with you to find another local GP surgery for you to register with
• Re-procurement: which means the CCG will try to find another healthcare organisation to deliver the GP service permanently, which may be from other premises

As your local CCG we have a responsibility to inform and consult you on the proposed changes.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to join us to discuss the proposed plans and get your views on these as well as answering any questions, concerns or suggestions that you may have. We have three meetings in place and the details are below:

Monday 28th October 2019
@ 10 am, Ladywood Health and Community Centre, 222 St Vincent Street West, Birmingham B16 8RP

Thursday 7th November 2019
@ 2 pm, Ladywood Health and Community Centre, 222 St Vincent Street West, Birmingham B16 8RP

Tuesday 12th November 2019
@ 6 pm, Ladywood Health and Community Centre, 222 St Vincent Street West, Birmingham B16 8RP
