University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust manages Selly Oak Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the new Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB).
The Trust provides a full range of services – it has a large renal programme and is a specialist centre for burns and plastic surgery, organ transplants, neuroscience and cancer. In March 2012 the hospital was designated a Major Trauma Centre.
The Trust employs more than 7,200 people across some 40 disciplines and sees more than 730,000 patients every year – ranging from a simple outpatient appointment to a heart transplant.
The £545 million QEHB, Birmingham's first new acute hospital in 70 years, opened its doors to patients in the summer of 2010 and provides modern and dependable acute adult healthcare and integrated mental health services. UHB is the leading teaching hospital in the West Midlands with strong links to the University of Birmingham.
