Vacancy Description

Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (BCHC) is a large provider of community and specialist healthcare.  We strive every day to realise the BCHC vision of delivering the best care in order to develop and sustain the healthiest communities; collectively driven by our shared values of being caring, open, responsible, respectful, and inclusive in everything we do.

Our five clinical divisions operate from over 300 sites across Birmingham and the West Midlands, providing care for people throughout their lives from newborn babies to the frail elderly.  Our services are diverse: from healthy lifestyle services that support people to feel well, to the most complex healthcare for those with highly specialist needs.  We provide care in people’s homes and also in clinics and inpatient units across the city.  We deliver all of this with a commitment to integrated, personalised care to meet the needs of our diverse local communities.

BCHC is a partner within both the Birmingham and Solihull (BSol) Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) and the Black Country and West Birmingham STP (BCWB). The NHS Long Term Plan confirmed that all parts of England would be served by an integrated care system or ICS from April 2021. Both BSol and BCWB STP have been approved to become an ICS by NHS England and Improvement and so were formally established on 1 April 2021.
