Bermuda is a self-governing British Overseas Territory with a population of 64000 and a mix of British and American culture. Bermuda’s legal system is based on English common law and English is the official language.
Based in the North Atlantic Ocean, some 3300 miles from the UK, Bermuda is an archipelago of seven main islands with approximately 170 named islets and rocks, the largest being Main Island. Bermudas capital is Hamilton, the hub for local and international business and is based on Main Island (Great Bermuda) on the northern shore of a deep-water harbour.
The climate is subtropical due to the mild winters but less typical of a subtropical climate summers are mild and temperatures do not usually exceed 30 degrees in the hottest months of the year. The hottest months are May through to October, with highs between 76°F (24°C) and 86°F (30°C). High humidity is caused by winds from the west carrying warm, moist air from the ocean. More famously, Bermuda lies within Hurricane Alley and is subject to severe weather conditions.
Bermuda offers a wide variety of outdoor activities including golf, tennis, sailing, and water sports such as deep-sea fishing and diving on the beautiful reefs. The Island enjoys a multicultural society with a high standard of living including good healthcare and schooling. The economy is based on tourism and international business including financial services. Getting around the islands is easy with bus and ferries being the most common forms of transport along with mopeds and scooters.
Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) comprises of King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH), Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute (MWI) and the Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre. BHB is mandated through legislation to provide quality mental health and acute care for the people of Bermuda. As a quango, the operations are managed by BHB’s Executive Team under the governance of a Government-appointed Board. They serve Bermuda’s resident population of approximately 64000 as well as the many visitors who arrive on the island each year. Given the relatively isolated geographic location, the Bermuda community needs a range of services far broader than would commonly be expected of a hospital serving a similar population base.
