Birmingham Children's Hospital is a children's hospital located in Birmingham, England. It also provides Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for the city. It was managed by Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust.
In October 1998 the hospital returned to Steelhouse Lane, to the buildings previously used by the General Hospital, as the Diana, Princess of Wales Children's Hospital - in honour of Diana, Princess of Wales, who had died the year before. The opening ceremony was carried out by the Queen.
In 2007, a new extension designed by RPS Group was opened. The extension created a burns unit, one of three such centres of excellence in the country. As well as this, it established an outpatients department, a neo-natal Unit, a burns ward and a burns operating theatre, as well as additional classrooms for the Education Centre, allowing children to continue their education whilst undergoing medium to long term care in the hospital.
The trust led a consortium of organisations called Forward Thinking Birmingham commissioned to provide mental health services for young people in the city up to the age of 25 from April 2016. Services for adults were previously provided by Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.
The hospital was managed by the Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Trust until 2017 when it merged with the Women's Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to create the Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust.
The current chair of the trust is Sir Bruce Keogh and Chief Executive Sarah-Jane Marsh, who is married to former NHS England Chief Executive Sir David Nicholson. She was appointed Chief Executive of Birmingham Women's NHS Foundation Trust with effect from 1 July 2015 and now runs the Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust.
The trust was named by the Health Service Journal as one of the top hundred NHS trusts to work for in 2015. At that time it had 3236 full-time equivalent staff and a sickness absence rate of 3.39%. 89% of staff recommend it as a place for treatment and 74% recommended it as a place to work.
