Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Birmingham Women’s have enjoyed a close working relationship for decades and by integrating as a single NHS organisation have taken a significant step forwards to an even brighter future for children’s and women’s services in the region.

Integrating as one trust is a momentous occasion, as not only will it create the first children’s and women’s NHS Foundation Trust in the UK, but it allows the delivery of a shared vision for healthcare built around the whole family, for Birmingham and beyond.

The hospital site, names and locations that you know and love will remain the same, as will the staff that you see, but as a combined function our Trust will have the best opportunity to continue to improve care for many generations of families to come.

Both hospitals pride themselves on delivering truly joined up, family-centred care and are really excited about the future together and the opportunity to continue to improve the care and experience of patients and families.
