CHA Functions



By networking we support communities and individuals to have a voice.


Quality Improvement

By promoting quality improvement, we support a community of practice, and promote innovation and best practice through our annual programme of awards. We hold regular conferences and workshops to share ideas and learn about new models of care and new ways of working.


Knowledge Exchange

Through our knowledge exchange, we support research and evaluation, and undertake to disseminate information and evidence on community hospitals. 



The CHA values its partnerships with organisations such as academic institutions, think tanks, benchmarking organisations, and those concerned with the patient and community voice.
