The new Queen Elizabeth Hospital

The new hospital will replace Queen Elizabeth and Selly Oak hospitals, which already have strong reputations for the quality of services they provide. The vision is to build on achievements to deliver the best in care.

Better, faster and more pleasant care

The new hospital represents a £545 million investment in the health services for Birmingham and the Midlands. It will provide a wide range of benefits that will greatly improve patient care. Extra patient benefits the new world class hospital will bring include:

  • One modern hospital
  • Care based on the needs of patients
  • More single rooms for improved privacy
  • A step change in ability to prevent infection
  • New technology and equipment
  • Integrated services for timely care
  • Putting patients first

The countdown ends in June 2010, the date the first patient is due to arrive for treatment. That date marks the start of a 16-month "moving in period" made up of more than 800 separate planned moves in four phases.
