Corporate Objectives 2019/2020
Our vision for improving the health and wellbeing of people in Walsall will be achieved by following clear corporate objectives. These objectives reflect where we are now as a CCG, where we want to be in the future and our obligation to fulfil our statutory duties. In our latest Corporate Objectives update, we have divided them to fall under 3 broader aims.
Corporate Objective 1 – Create a local health and care service with our partners
Through patient and public involvement, we wish that by year-end there is an understanding of the important role that people and communities play in the future local place-based arrangements. We wish to deliver on:
Corporate Objective 2 – Make sure that the services we buy are of good quality, delivered safely and perform well
Through patient and public involvement, we want to ensure the experiences of people are used to shape improvements in care in the priority areas, and that future services are designed through the involvement of those using them. We’re aiming to have the CCGs bringing together integrated assurance into a single committee, and also improve the assurance to the Governing Body on the delivery of quality and safety. Also, there is a priority on making positive improvements in primary care as a basis for the local care model.

Corporate Objective 3 – Manage the money well
Through patient and public involvement, we aim to ensure that the Quality Innovation Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) plans are communicated and engaged upon and that no decisions are made without adequate involvement.

Corporate Objective 4 – Ensure effective delivery of our statutory duties
In terms of our patient and public involvement, no decisions are to be made without adequate involvement, and we also aim to deliver on the duties which we directly manage now, and understand how we will quantify the delivery of this then they eventually become part of the placed-based care model. We will provide clear reporting for assurance to the Governing Body on how we deliver on:

Corporate Objective 6 – Work well with the Local Authority
Through our Stakeholder involvement, the Local Authority (LA) sees us as partners in commissioning services to improve health outcomes for local residents, and they also understand our plans and why they are in place. LAs see a role for them in future place-based arrangements. The role of the CCG will continue to be understood:
