Blog

Please feel free to browse our selection of blogs, brought to you by some of our chief officers, staff and Engage Members.

If you’ve never heard of a blog, it’s a short form of the words ‘web log’ – a regular story or feature that appears on the web.

Our Members are welcome to start a blog of their own if there’s something you want to tell people about regularly. Perhaps you’re volunteering on a project, or want to share your experience of dealing with an illness.

Members can of course put their comments or replies online against any active blog, but once again – please be nice.

Chief Executive’s Blog – December 2014

Friday December 12, 3:59pm

Last week, I recorded a Christmas message for hospital radio.  There are only so many ways to say thank you to colleagues working this festive season, and their families who miss them.  But thank you nonetheless – working in the NHS is a privilege, but also places great demands on...

Chief Executives Blog – November 2014

Tuesday November 4, 6:15pm

I do not usually quote the Nursing Times in aid, but I am absolutely thrilled that our iCares team, which provides specialist community care across Sandwell, has scooped their top national award for Integrated Care.  I was just as pleased to spend time with the team and hear individuals describe...
