University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in England, serving a regional, national and international population.
The Trust provides a full range of services across South Birmingham, East Birmingham, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Tamworth and South Staffordshire.
Our 20,000 members of staff see and treat more than 2.2 million people every year and our hospitals deliver more babies than anywhere else in Europe.
We pride ourselves on having services at the heart of our communities. Our hospitals include Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, Solihull Hospital, Good Hope Hospital and Birmingham Chest Clinic. We also provide community health services across the borough of Solihull and run a number of smaller satellite units, allowing people to be treated as close to home as possible. Working alongside its partners, the Trust runs Umbrella, the sexual health service for Birmingham and Solihull.
We are a regional centre for cancer, trauma, renal dialysis, burns and plastics, HIV and AIDS, as well as respiratory conditions like cystic fibrosis. We also have expertise in premature baby care, bone marrow transplants and thoracic surgery and have the largest solid organ transplantation programme in Europe. We provide a series of highly specialist cardiac, liver and neurosurgery services to patients from across the UK.
