About us

Birmingham Health Partners, established in 2015, is a strategic alliance between eight University and NHS members who collaborate to deliver groundbreaking translational research, world-class education and training, and the highest quality patient care.

With over 50,000 staff, 5 million patient contacts annually and a combined turnover of £4.7 billion, we operate in one of the UK’s most socially, ethnically and economically diverse areas.

However, Birmingham faces unique challenges, being the third-poorest and one of the youngest cities in the country, with significant health disparities too.

Through our partnership, we aim to create a vibrant community which thrives on collaboration. We believe that by working together, we can achieve significant breakthroughs in medical research and patient care, translate research into practice and speed up the adoption of these innovations in the clinic.

Research is at the heart of what we do. Our dedicated researchers are exploring new treatments, diagnostics, and preventative measures to address the pressing health challenges we’re facing as a city, region and nation.

We’re also committed to nurturing the next generation of healthcare professionals and researchers, providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to make a lasting impact in their fields.

We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far, but we know that there is always more to be done. We envision a future where health outcomes continually rise, and our population benefits from being at the forefront of healthcare advancements.
