Birmingham Community Healthcare Trust (BCHC) aims to become an 'Armed Forces Community Friendly Trust', where we are better able to meet the expectations of Armed Forces personnel, veterans and their families.
Our vision, in line with the armed forces covenant, the NHS Constitution and the current draft of the NHS England armed forces health - five year strategy 2014-2019, is to provide high quality, accessible, effective and responsive community healthcare services that meet the needs and expectations of our armed forces community throughout their transition and beyond.
Are you currently/have been in contact with the Armed Forces Community? Want to share your experiences? Or want to find out more about this project? Any upcoming events/training opportunities? Or simply how you could help?
Then we would love to hear from you!
