BASHH is Your Specialty Association

It is largely run by Members and Fellows who offer their time, energy and expertise to keep BASHH intelligently developing, analysing and responding to the needs of all those interested in the specialty. BASHH must be relevant and responsive to the challenges we have been facing as regards national strategies, service provision, clinical guidelines and standards, provision of education and training, service innovation and digital health technologies. BASHH has strong links to partner organisations including, but not restricted to: FSRH, BHIVA, RCP, PHE, NAT – BASHH is in a strong position to influence and determine the future of our specialty.
