NHS Wyre Forest Annual Report and Accounts for 2016/17

As I write the welcome to this year’s annual report, it is hard to believe I have been chair to the CCG for four months’ now. It has gone so quickly. I’d like to express my thanks to Dr Simon Rumley for all his time and commitment he gave to the CCG over the last three years. Wyre Forest CCG has been on such a journey over the last 12 months, with some staff leaving the CCG and new faces joining me on the Governing Body, I’m pleased to be leading the good work we are doing in transforming health and care services for our population.

Our excellent progress made this year is all down to the commitment and hard work of our staff, Governing Body members and GP member practices. They have supported me, and the wider CCG leadership team in continuously meeting the ever changing challenges we face as a health economy. I would also like to thank our local community for the support they give us when we are responding to these challenges, especially when we are faced with quite difficult decisions.

NHS Wyre Forest Annual Report and Accounts for 2015/16

I am pleased to present to you NHS Wyre Forest Clinical Commissioning Group’s Annual Report and Accounts 2015/16. This Annual Report tells you what we have been doing during the year; our highs and our lows.

Like many CCGs we have had another busy year which brought with it many new challenges. However, we have continued to fulfil our statutory duties in commissioning quality healthcare for our local population.

As always, we need to ensure we are spending our money wisely, commissioning high quality care but also guaranteeing value for money. I am pleased to say that we have managed our money well this year and achieved financial balance. Going forward however, this is going to become more difficult. Our finances will be tested in 2016/17 so we need to start thinking of more innovative ways of delivering patient care. We are already starting to pursue new ideas in how we can support patients to be cared for in their own homes.

NHS Wyre Forest Annual Report and Accounts for 2014/15

Welcome to the second Annual Report of NHS Wyre Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). During 2014/15 the CCG has maintained its focus on securing high quality, needs based health services for the local population and ensuring that the voice of local people are integral to service developments, commissioning decisions and assurance processes.

Pressures on the urgent care system have presented challenges for the CCG and for our local providers. The CCG maintains a leading role in reviewing the current services and helping to shape the range of services going forward.

Our member practices have been involved in setting CCG priorities for the year, with a recognition that building on the already high quality local primary care services will enhance services for local people and provide added value for the CCG. The CCG has embarked on a move towards taking on delegated commissioning responsibilities for primary care services, with interim co-commissioning arrangements.

NHS Wyre Forest Annual Report and Accounts for 2013/14 

As a CCG we celebrated our first birthday in April and we are making very good progress. In 2013/14 we won a national award for our work in local care homes, we finished as the highest rated CCG in England for our palliative care, and were placed third out of over two hundred CCGs for patient satisfaction with their primary care services. Many other measures, and our reports from NHS England, rate us as the most effective CCG in our area.

But we can’t afford to sit back and relax. The NHS is a huge, complex and ever-changing organisation. We can expect more challenges in the coming year, not least financial. We are being asked to do more and more with less and less. To date our achievements are good; this is a reflection of the work of our CCG team and all those with whom we work in the Wyre Forest area.

NHS Wyre Forest Annual Report and Accounts for 2013/14

NHS Wyre Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been operating as a statutory body since 1st April 2013, established under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, having  been licensed without conditions in January 2013. There have been no changes to this during the year. 

The CCG recognises that, whilst being a locally-based clinically-led organisation which is well placed to identify the health needs of the local population and the type of support and services required, there are also a wide range of factors which affect and impact on population health and well-being - many of these involve wider public health, environmental, or societal determinants.
