The Quality and Patient Safety Team works across Redditch and Bromsgrove CCG and Wyre Forest CCG to ensure that safe, effective and high quality health services are commissioned and delivered for our local populations. Quality is at the heart of each of the CCG’s values and we make it a priority to maintain a focus on high quality care and patient outcomes. The team aim to promote a culture of openness and transparency where identified concerns or incidents are learnt from and where a culture of service improvement is influenced across the health and social care community. The team place the needs of local people at the centre of all that it does and works hard to ensure that we learn from patients and public experiences of care.
Jo Galloway is Chief Nursing Officer for the CCG.
At Wyre Forest CCG our vision is to,
'Bring together local people, GPs and other clinical professionals to improve the quality and experience for patients of their health care’.
One of our key priorities is to improve the health of our patients by commissioning high quality, value for money healthcare services. To achieve high quality care in the next financial year, Wyre Forest's Clinical Commissioning Group, in partnership with our stakeholders have agreed quality priorities that reflect national standards and includes key recommendations from the recent Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust Public Inquiry.
