Didn't they mothball some wards in the new hospital before it even opened, if so presumably these would have been used first?

A few years ago I think the top two floors weren't in use at the new QE

According to reports its now at full capacity with the newest built section at the old QE now reopened and a further 2 wards of 34 beds each re opening in a 1930s built section of the old QE

What are the plans for the old QE site though? Was it going to be demolished? If so replaced with what?

Just a thought... It's inevitable the children's hospital will be moved to a new site in the future, demolish the old QE with a huge new build replacement childrens hospital and extra main wards paid for from the redevelopment at Selly oak and the children's hospital site?

With the life sciences campus being built at the former battery site could really become a medical quarter

It does give this project a push to start ASAP though

its already been confirmed that the children's is either moving next door to where thy are currently are , or are going to move next to the womens

the real reason uhb is at capacity is because everyone wants to go there for treatments, its become too popular

I work for this trust and we are getting a lot of people come over from the QE as there at bursting point, in fact all the big hospitals are running at full capicity at the moment. As for this hospital, theres always talk from managers about when its going to happen. And 2017 has been foating around recently.

£370m Midlands super hospital to transform healthcare

A £370 million new super hospital will transform healthcare in one part of the Midlands.



The plans for the 670-bed Midland Metropolitan Hospital have been drawn up by Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals trust for land in Smethwick.

But they have been hit by delays, prompting officials to apply to extend planning permission for the scheme and work is still not due to begin until 2016.

However bosses at the trust which runs Sandwell, Rowley Regis and City hospitals, remain committed to the project and say until it finally gets off the ground they will be expanding services for patients.

The development is earmarked for Grove Lane and will replace Sandwell Hospital in West Bromwich and City Hospital, in Winson Green.

All of the current properties on the site have now been bought, either through their owners deciding to sell up after hearing of the scheme, or through health chiefs’ use of Compulsory Purchase Orders.

And bosses insist the scheme is moving forward.

Toby Lewis, chief executive of the trust, said: “We continue to progress discussions about the potential new hospital.

“If all necessary external permissions are obtained this financial year, then construction would commence in 2016.

“All properties on the Grove Lane site have been acquired by CPO and voluntary acquisition.”

Mr Lewis said that in the period from now until work starting, extra efforts were being made to make sure existing healthcare provision could be expanded for patients.

He added: “Meanwhile, we are working with partners to expand services in general practice and in community settings. New services have moved into Rowley Regis and the Portway Lifestyle Centre in recent weeks and we are looking to move the majority of clinics for diabetes into primary care settings over this winter.

“The great benefit for local patients of the proposed Midland Metropolitan Hospital is that it concentrates acute specialist care.

“This means that scarce, highly skilled clinicians will be available to look after the sickest patients more quickly, seven days a week, day and night.

“That is what we believe is needed, as soon as possible, for the half a million people who need our care. This can only be achieved with one major emergency department, supported by local urgent care centres.”

The hospital is due to take up 16 acres on Grove Lane but a further 31 acres of land between Grove Lane, Cranford Street, Heath Street and Dugdale Street is to be transformed and filled with other employment opportunities and housing schemes.

Sandwell Council has already adopted those multi-million regeneration plans, which had been the subject of extensive consultation and dubbed the Grove Lane Masterplan. Bosses at the trust say the project will provide construction jobs, replace poor buildings in the Smethwick area and release parts of the City and Sandwell hospital sites for redevelopment.

A bus hub may also be included in the regeneration scheme.

Centro is looking into the need to build as the influx of hospital workers into areas surrounding the scheme would place extra demand on existing services.

And it not just the future where bosses are focusing their attention. The trust was recently ranked among the better performing of NHS trusts across the UK.

It was placed in band four of a six-band table by the Care Quality Commission, with band six trusts being those with the lowest levels of concern.

The trust is also proactively pioneering a scheme which could change the lives of those teenagers in its area who are homeless.

It is spending £600,000 refurbishing an old accommodation block to help launch its Homeless Prevention Programme, aimed at getting 16 to 18-year-old homeless people employment within the trust through its apprenticeship scheme.

So whether it is now or in the future – health chiefs in Sandwell have plenty to shout about.

Bidders day for country’s first PF2 hospital build
19th February 2014
Written by Aaron Morby

Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust is about to start the tender race for the planned new Midland Metropolitan Hospital.

Ahead of prequalification, the Trust is planning a bidders day on 6 March to set out details of PF2 and its chosen procurement route.

A call for shortlisting potential bidders for the £285m hospital building project is then due to go out in April.

The Midland Metropolitan Hospital will be located in Smethwick, close to the boundary between Sandwell and Birmingham on a derelict industrial estate in Grove Lane .

The hospital is likely to be 8 storeys high with around 670 beds providing capacity for around 107,000 inpatients and 120,000 outpatients each year.

The NHS Trust development agency has approved the business case. A final decision is expected from the Treasury in the next few months, although the Chancellor has already mentioned the scheme in his last Autumn Statement.

Following approval and other procedures, the hospital will take up to five years to complete.

Bidders day
The Trust has prepared a pre-market engagement brochure, which can be obtained by interested parties by sending an email to:

Super hospital on way at last as Chancellor George Osborne pledges £353m

George Osborne today gave the green light to a long-awaited £353 million ‘super hospital’ for the Black Country.

The announcement came as the Chancellor visited Rowley Regis Hospital – part of Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust.

The 670-bed acute Midland Metropolitan Hospital in Grove Lane, Smethwick, has been on the cards for a decade but has been hit by delays amid a shake-up of the controversial private finance initiative, which funds new buildings but mounts up debts over many years.

The hospital is due to take up 16 acres on Grove Lane but a further 31 acres of land between Grove Lane, Cranford Street, Heath Street and Dugdale Street is to be transformed and filled with other employment opportunities and housing schemes.

Rowley Regis Hospital, which is in the Tory marginal seat of Halesowen and Rowley Regis, will see its role in providing non-acute, community-based care expanded.

Today it was announced that the Treasury is providing £100m to the scheme, with the rest raised from private investment.

The area’s MP James Morris wrote to the Chancellor in 2012 asking for the Treasury to back the new hospital.

Mr Osborne said: “This ambitious package will ensure that patients across the West Midlands continue to benefit from access to world-class acute treatment and cutting-edge facilities.

“It is because of the difficult decisions we have taken as a Government that we have been able to protect healthcare spending, and announce new facilities like the Midland Metropolitan Hospital.”

Rowley Regis Hospital, which is in the Tory marginal seat of Halesowen and Rowley Regis, will see its role in providing non-acute, community based care expanded.

The area's MP James Morris wrote to the Chancellor in 2012 asking for the Treasury to back the new hospital.

Mr Osborne continued: “Midland Metropolitan Hospital will have state-of-the-art surgical theatres. We will invest in hospitals like Rowley Regis here.

“This is proof that we are committed to the NHS and that we have a long-term economic plan which makes investment like this possible.

“The hospital is going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will meet needs for decades to come.”

The Chancellor said the announcement showed a dramatic turnaround in the fortunes of Rowley Regis Hospital, which had previously been under threat but will now see its role in providing community-based care increased.

“Four years ago this hospital was facing the closure of its wards,” the Chancellor said.

“Now we have wards open and staff are really excited about the future for this hospital.”

The Chancellor’s announcement came as celebrations were well under way for Black Country Day, which Mr Osborne praised as ‘great’.

Chief executive Toby Lewis added: “This is a decisive moment for healthcare in the West Midlands. We welcome the determination of the Chancellor to support the regeneration of Smethwick with this vital project for patients.”

Midland Metropolitan Hospital PFI plans approved

The Midland Metropolitan Hospital will be built on this land in Smethwick

A £353m hospital is to be built in the West Midlands.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne has announced approval for the 670-bed Midland Metropolitan Hospital to be built on land in Smethwick.

The building will be funded by both the public and private sector through a private finance deal, he said.

It will replace large parts of Sandwell Hospital and City Hospital in Winson Green, although some services will remain, NHS managers have said.

Mr Osborne said: "This ambitious package will ensure that patients across the West Midlands continue to benefit from access to world-class acute treatment and cutting edge facilities."

Artists impression of Midland Metropolitan Hospital
The new hospital is earmarked for land off Grove Lane in Smethwick
Construction work on the hospital is expected to begin on a site at Grove Lane in Smethwick in 2016 and finish in 2019.

Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust said it had begun the process of looking for a construction partner to build it as part of the governments revised private finance initiative (PFI) scheme.

Under PFI 2 guidelines the taxpayer takes a share of up to 49% in new projects with the rest coming from private investors.

The Trust said £100m of public money would be used to build the new hospital.

Chief Executive Toby Lewis said: "Our commitment... is to develop more community-based services at our sites in Rowley Regis, at Leasowes and on Dudley Road, and to refurbish Sandwell Hospital to ensure high quality outpatient and intermediate care in West Bromwich."

City Hospital in Birmingham
The A and E department at City Hospital in Birmingham is to close
Overall bed numbers in the hospital will be reduced by around 75, but extra beads will be made available in the community to make up the difference.

The £35m Birmingham Treatment Centre built in 2005 on the City Hospital site would also stay, but accident and emergency departments at both City and Sandwell hospitals would close, he said.

Ray Salmon, from the Unison union, said: "We are pleased this has been given the go ahead because we don't feel the City Hospital is fit for purpose for staff.

"We are not worried about the closure of the A and E department because the distance from where it is now will be offset by the better facilities."

Sandwell Council leader, Darren Cooper said: "I think the new hospital will serve both Sandwell and west Birmingham well.

"This is a massive investment for Smethwick and this will be the catalyst for the total regeneration of Cape Hill in particular."

Good win for Birmingham and Sandwell this. All the benefits of centralising specialist services into a new build but with the benefit of keeping community services on the existing sites.

I hope they make the most of the canal. This could be a good spot for residential moorings.

They could even have narrowboat ambulances!
