About our locations
From large hospitals with world-class facilities, to clinics doing vital work in the community, University Hospitals Birmingham (UHB) has sites across Birmingham, Solihull and the West Midlands.
We also have offices and other buildings in locations across Birmingham so, if you're looking for a new challenge in the region, chances are we've got a location to suit you.
Good Hope Hospital
Located in the Royal town of Sutton Coldfield, approximately 7 miles north of Birmingham city centre, Good Hope Hospital is just a few minutes’ walk from bijou shops, bars and cafes. Sutton Park, the largest urban park in England, is also a short walk away from the hospital.
This 450-bedded district hospital serves North Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield and the more rural communities of south east Staffordshire, as well as historic Lichfield and Tamworth.
The hospital provides acute and general medicine and other specialist services. It's also home to the Partnership Learning Centre, which is part-funded by the Medical School of the University of Birmingham.
Heartlands Hospital is based at the heart of a thriving, diverse and largely residential area of the city. A large but friendly site, it provides all the major specialties including maternity, paediatric, A&E and outpatient services.
The site also is home to the Medical Innovation Development Research Unit (MIDRU) and the region’s Centre for Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine.
Further investment in the hospital site will see the opening of a multi-million pound Heartlands Treatment Centre in late 2022.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham
Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB), whose main building opened in June 2010, is located on what is known as the QE Campus in Edgbaston, a leafy suburb of Birmingham.
The campus is Birmingham’s health science epicentre. The campus is also home to the Heritage Building (our original Queen Elizabeth Hospital), the Institute of Translational Medicine, University of Birmingham, Birmingham Women’s Hospital, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and other facilities, such as research units.
The campus also boasts community orchards and gardens where staff patients and visitors grow fruit and veg, keep bees and plant wild flowers to encourage native wildlife. The hospital’s fortnightly Farmers’ Market is a great way to pick up supplies and support local businesses.
Solihull Hospital is a small district hospital serving south Birmingham and the villages around Solihull, a market town located to the south east of Birmingham.
The hospital is located in the centre of Solihull’s upmarket town centre, just a short stroll from the Touchwood Shopping Centre, bars, restaurants and Brueton Park on the banks of the river Blythe.
It provides a range of outpatient, inpatient and emergency care services (including minor injuries unit) and GP-based services for its local community. It is also the regional centre for dermatology.
