VIP Awards 2022 Sponsors banner
Have you received outstanding care from an individual member of our staff or a whole team? Do you want to say an extra special 'thank you'?

Our Values in Practice Staff Awards Programme allows staff, patients and members of the public to nominate Birmingham Community Healthcare Foundation Trust individuals or team for going above and beyond to provide the very best service or care for patients.

The awards are based on our Trust values of Caring, Open, Responsible, Respectful and Inclusivity.

This year, the BCHC VIP Awards are sponsored by:

  • Birmingham City Football Club

We extend our warmest thanks to each of our sponsors for their support.
