Learning Resources
BCHC  is large Trust providing in excess of one hundred clinical services in over 300 clinics,
health centres, hospitals and of course in patients and service user homes. Obviously the variety of placements that we offer in partnership with other providers reflects this diversity.  The opportunities for you to learn are vast and we hope that you enjoy your time with us and of course once qualified that you want to return to work with us!

The resources here in this section of the Hub are aimed to help you find your way, understand the work of a community Trust and perhaps add some context for you as you work with your supervisors and mentors.
We offer a huge range of services across the city please take your time to explore these and familiarise yourself with what we do.

Placement opportunities are geographically disparate. Locating you allocated placement area is easy. Click here for a comprehensive list of all placement locations and site addresses. Once you have found out where you will be on placement if you are using public transport this link offers a comprehensive guide to travelling around the city- offering timetables, cost, options etc. 

Planning your journey will help reduce stress and again enable you to get the most from the experience. If you are not familiar with Birmingham or maybe you are visiting us from overseas be sure to ask at ticket offices about current options for buying monthly bus/train/tram passes. 

There are lots of different options/offers available to you so it is always wise to check with ticket offices just before or when you wish to purchase tickets as offers change all the time. 

If you would like to set up your IT account to use BCHC computers whilst on placement, please contact the clinical development facilitators by emailing
