University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust runs the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Birmingham Chest Clinic, Heartlands Hospital, Good Hope Hospital, Solihull Hospital and various community services across the region.

The Trust has regional centres for trauma, burns, plastics, neurosciences, dermatology and cancer. It also has centres of excellence for vascular, bariatric and pathology services, as well as the treatment of MRSA and other infectious diseases.


Birmingham has a world-leading clinical informatics platform which enables highly characterised patient cohort data collection across bioinformatics (e.g. genetics, phenotyping, metabolomics), clinical informatics (e.g. diagnostic categories, co-morbidities, social phenotyping, haematology, biochemistry, drug treatments) health informatics (e.g. patient outcomes, patient reported outcome measures) and IT platforms that enable patient data-sharing across NHS organisations. This expertise is led academically from the University’s Centre for Computational Biology.
