Clinical Case for Change

Clinical leaders from across the Black Country and West Birmingham have agreed twelve clinical priorities to improve the health and care outcomes of local people. The twelve priorities are part of a ‘clinical case for change’ for delivering integrated health and care services.

The case for change will be clinically led and will make a difference to local patients by:
•    Reducing unwarranted variation and duplication across health and care services
•    Helping to address the triple aim: improve people’s health, improve the quality of services and deliver financial stability
•    Ensuring services are of the highest quality and sustainable
•    Ensuring clinical services are delivered with a workforce equipped to deliver

During the summer, the case for change will be used to inform a five-year plan for how local health and care organisations will deliver the ambitions set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.

Listen to Professor Nick Harding talk about how the clinical case for change will make a difference to people in the Black Country and West Birmingham.
