Defining Community Hospitals

About the Community Hospitals Association

 The Community Hospitals Association (CHA) was established 50 years ago and is a unique voice for community hospitals - their services, staff, patients and communities.  The CHA is a membership organisation which supports community hospitals in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We are dedicated to sharing knowledge and experience on the role, function and potential of community hospitals. We also share information throughout our networks on the contribution that community hospital services make to the health and wellbeing of patients and communities.   We have a growing membership, and we are committed to supporting all those concerned with their community hospitals.
