Swansea Bay University Health Board (SBUHB) Armed Forces Forum Celebration Event

26/08/2020

In place of our usual Armed Forces Forum we are going to hold a special meeting to celebrate our work with the Armed Forces during the pandemic so far. Our health boards CEO Tracy Myhill will be joining us along with our military liaison officer & health board colleagues who will be speaking about their work & experiences.

The health board meeting has been established to help ensure the aims and objectives of the Armed Forces Community Covenant are fulfilled. They co-ordinate work to deliver on commitments e.g. employing veterans, supporting individuals transitioning out of the Armed Forces into a new career in health and providing flexibility for reservists.

Date: 26th August 2020

Time: 13:45-15:30

Venue: Virtual
