BHBN HAS REBRANDED
So you have noticed there has been a change to our name and our logo which has designed by Penny-Jane Bourne a BHBN member who is a Graphic Designer by trade.
The change of name was decided upon to reflect not only our current service but our hopes and inspiration for the future, which are, not only having listeners in the hospitals we serve but patients are encouraged to take us home with them by the introduction phone App. which is currently under construction. We are also hoping to expand our service to the wider health community such as Nursing Homes and Health centres as well as the local community.
V.E. Day 75th Anniversary
On the 8th May BHBN repeated a programme produced and presented by Donna Joseph that was first broadcast five years ago on the 70th Anniversary of V.E. Day.
This programme was enjoyed by the patients in Birmingham’s Hospitals so Donna decided to put visuals to the audio and launch it to Facebook that was extremely well received.
Now here is a chance to view this again on You Tube by clicking on the adjacent image.
