UHB Charity is dedicated to improving the experience of patients, their families and the staff who care for them.
The Charity raises funds to support patients of the four hospitals by providing new and innovative equipment, funding research and supporting patient and family welfare projects.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham in particular has a world class reputation, and specialises in cancer treatment, organ transplantations and trauma care. It is also home of the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine, where the UK’s military patients are treated.

Good Hope Hospital and Solihull Hospital serve the towns of Sutton Coldfield and Solihull.
