Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG named Outstanding CCG at Self Care Week Awards

Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG has been recognised at the Self Care Week Awards for their outstanding work promoting self care among their community during Self Care Week 2019. This is the second year that the awards included a joint Self Care Forum/NHSCC Award for Outstanding Clinical Commissioning Group.

We were also delighted to see Wakefield CCG highly commended at these awards which celebrate the campaigns which took place during Self Care Week in November 2019 helping people to “think self care for life”.

Julie Wood, NHS Clinical Commissioners’ chief executive said “we are delighted to partner again with the Self Care Forum to support the hotly contested award for Outstanding CCG. Supporting and empowering people to self care is one of the core priorities for our members right across the country. The quality of nominees once again shows the range of impressive and important work that CCGs are undertaking in their local areas to get the word out about the importance of self care.”

Self Care Forum Chair Helen Donovan added “it is encouraging each year to see the rich diversity of organisations using Self Care Week as a vehicle to increase people’s knowledge and understanding of how to take care of their own health and their family’s health. Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all participants for supporting this initiative each year.”
