RMC has a health caseworker in each of our offices. Their task is to assist our clients to access the healthcare they require, often liaising with health professionals as they do so. In Wolverhampton, we also have a dedicated Community Psychiatric Nurse.

Our Mission is to help each individual maximise their health and wellbeing.

Nigerian Healthcare project

RMC has been funded by Birmingham City Council to find out more about healthcare for Nigerians in Birmingham. As part of this, we want to hear from local Nigerians on your experiences and give you a chance to help co-create a better system that will be presented to local professionals.

How to get help

People can access the service via our drop in (information below), through referrals from other organisations or in places the team are actively visiting.

Drop in service:

If you need help, you can attend one of RMC’s three offices where our open drop-in service runs on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings between 9am-1pm.   

Regular appointments are booked on a first-come, first-served basis but emergencies are prioritised.  

Alternatively, service users can contact our new Regional Telephone Service (NOT AN ADVICE LINE) number on 0800 0663 444 for an update on existing enquiry/s.

Mental health first aid training project report

RMC trained 100 individuals in Mental Health First Aid and created a team of community of support. See more about why the work was undertaken and the great impact it had.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, RMC was at the forefront of providing support. From community advice, training health champions, breaking down misinformation and providing information in a range of languages, we ensured we did everything we could to keep people safe.
