Service changes at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group
Updates on services changes:
- Further to the update below, sent on 01 April, we are pleased to inform you that the Gynaecology Assessment Unit (GAU) has now been moved back to Heartlands Hospital, from Good Hope Hospital.
- From mid-June, complex haematology patients receiving high intensity chemotherapy e.g. acute Leukaemia and bone marrow transplant patients, will be admitted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, rather than Heartlands Hospital.
- From 1 July, vascular surgery will move from Queen Elizabeth Hospital to Heartlands Hospital, on a temporary basis. This change is necessary to ensure adequate staffing, to accommodate the number of cases and ensure the most appropriate theatre facilities.
- From 20 July, thoracic surgery will move from Heartlands Hospital to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, on a temporary basis. This will allow more emergency and planned surgery to be carried out, therefore reducing waiting times, in the most appropriate clinical environment.
