Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust

Officially launched in February 2017, Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust brings two BHP partners, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Birmingham Women’s Hospital, together under one united NHS Foundation Trust – the first of its kind in the UK.

The integration of these Trusts follows months of close working to develop shared goals for the best women’s and children’s healthcare, built around the whole family, improving care for many generations of families to come.

The Trust employs 6,000 staff, with UK and world-leading surgeons, doctors, nurses, midwives and other allied healthcare professional on our team working together to provide the best possible care to thousands of patients each year.

This new combined organisation will play an integral role at the heart of Birmingham Health Partners and will provide the very best of family-centric care for Birmingham and beyond.
