7th March 2018 – MCP Update – Find out about important changes to health and care services
Plans are underway to transform health and care in Dudley borough. Find out what this might mean for Dudley and join the conversation.
Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been working with partners to redesign health and social care across Dudley borough.
A Multi-Specialty Community Provider (MCP) is one way suggested by the NHS to develop local services and Dudley was chosen as one of the first areas to introduce this new approach. Over the last three years Dudley CCG has been working on this and is in the process of identifying a new organisation that will join up some physical health, mental health, social care and voluntary sector services in Dudley borough.

Members of the MCP bidding team (a partnership between Dudley GPs, Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust) will be on hand to:
- Explain what type of organisation the proposed MCP will be
- Bring you up to date with the journey so far
- Describe how the proposed new clinical model will be different
- Detail the services that will be included
- Discuss any changes
- Share next steps and plans moving forward
- Listen to your feedback and answer your questions
The bidders are required to make their final submission by 23rd April 2018 and are very keen to include your views in the development of their plans.

14h March 2018 – Your views on adult mental health assessment services
Have you tried to get, or received help with your mental health in the last two years? Perhaps you were in crisis, felt anxious, depressed or just knew that something wasn’t right?
Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust launched their new 24-hour Assessment Service in May last year and Healthwatch Dudley has been asked by the Trust to find out what people think.
During this event you will asked to share:
- Did the system work for you when you tried to get help?
- If you needed urgent help did you get a timely response?
- Did you feel listened to and cared for while you were being referred to other services?
- Do you think that the new 24-hour Assessment Service is making a difference to you or the people you care for?
People’s Network events are usually for everyone but this special event is only open to people who access services provided by Dudley and Walsall Mental Health NHS Partnership Trust and the people who support them in an unpaid capacity. If this does not apply to you, we look forward to welcoming you to a future event.
