BME Health Forum Quarterly Meetings

The BME Health Forum holds four engagement meetings a year to which we invite local BME organisations delivering services in Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster and local NHS commissioners.

At these meetings there will be opportunities to feedback about local NHS services as well as the work your organisations are doing.

If you would like to be invited to these meetings please get in touch with Nafsika Thalassis here
