Solihull residents urged to have their say on changes to hospital services

Solihull Editorial 31st Jul, 2019   0

SILHILLIANS are being invited to hear about proposed changes to hospital services from leading doctors and managers.

University Hospital Birmingham Foundation NHS Trust (UHB) wants to switch around adult surgical services in a bid to ‘reduce waiting times and improve outcome.’

The trust, which runs Solihull Hospital, Heartlands Hospital, Good Hope Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital wants to change how it delivers its trauma, orthopaedic and gynaecology services to create ‘centres of excellence.’

The Trust say outpatient, X-ray, scans or therapy appointments should not be affected by these suggested changes.




A series of public drop-in sessions are set to be held at the hospital sites.

Along with a presentation detailing the suggested changes, hospital and Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group representatives are keen to hear from attendees and to answer any questions at the sessions, which are open to all.


The sessions to be held are:

Monday, August 5 at Good Hope Hospital from 4pm until 7pm.
