The Prince of Wales will today visit military and medical personnel at a Birmingham hospital unit which treats British casualties injured in Afghanistan.
Charles will also see a display of artwork provided by the Paintings In Hospitals charity, which is marking its 50th anniversary, during his visit to Birmingham’s Royal Centre for Defence Medicine.
The centre, sited at Selly Oak Hospital, was opened in 2001 by the Princess Royal and receives wounded soldiers flown back to Britain from overseas.
Charles, a patron of Paintings In Hospitals, has made numerous previous visits to Selly Oak in recent years to meet injured service personnel.
Paintings In Hospitals lends original works of art to healthcare facilities, including hospices, with the aim of improving patients’ well-being and experiences.
