HSJ Awards 2012 logo

Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust (BCHC) is among the organisations shortlisted for the accolade of ‘provider of the year’ in the Health Service Journal Awards 2012.

Members of the judging panel are to visit Birmingham to see first-hand how local people are benefiting from the Trust’s innovative, community-based services, which are designed to provide high quality, readily accessible healthcare services closer to, or in, people’s homes, reducing unnecessary hospital admissions (see Note 2).
The Trust's work to implement a citywide single point of access for adult community services has also been shortlisted, in the primary care and community service redesign category.

Chief executive Tracy Taylor said: “Being shortlisted for ‘provider of the year’ is a great achievement and testimony to the dedication of our staff to deliver consistently high quality services.

“We’re very proud to have achieved this recognition and our aim now is to give the judges a real sense of the scale of what we do and the commitment of all our staff to deliver healthcare services that meet the needs of all the communities we serve.”
