Barking and Dagenham Clinical Commissioning Group, 6th floor North House St Edwards Way Romford RM1 3AE
The NHS and faith communities in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge have joined together and created the BHR Health and Faith Network. The group began meeting informally in April in response to the pandemic with an aim to understand different communities’ needs and to share important messages with faith groups. The members decided that the end of the pandemic, whenever this should be, shouldn’t be the end of them meeting and so they developed a terms of reference and planned the official launch event as part of Inter Faith Week 2020.At the launch, Joe Fielder, Chair in Common, Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals Trust and NELFT NHS Foundation Trust, shared his thoughts on the importance of faith within the NHS. Also speaking at the event was Mohamed Omer, chair of Redbridge Faith Forum, Yunus Dudhwala, head of chaplaincy, Barts Health NHS Trust, and Mohammed Rashid, mental health chaplain, NELFT.
