There are many advances in the local health services, which means we can offer more advice and treatment at local health surgeries, pharmacists and clinics. Our Primary Care Services include 64 GP practices, 70 General Dental Practitioners, 85 local Pharmacists, and 51 local Opticians. We try to keep health care close to home and we also offer a range of nursing and therapy services to support this through the local GP.
Public health is an important role for the Primary Care Trust. We look at the health of the entire local population and address issues specific to our area. Public health issues include poverty, obesity, diet, exercise, smoking and other factors which impact on health.
The PCT has a budget of over £330 million for securing health services for the local population. There is also a budget of approximately £112 million for directly providing services. We mainly commission services from local hospitals Queen Elizabeth and Selly Oak Hospitals, Birmingham Women’s Hospital, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Trust, and South Birmingham provider services including Birmingham Dental Hospital, Moseley Hall Hospital and West Heath Hospital.
