Good Hope Hospital is a hospital in the Sutton Coldfield area of Birmingham, England. Covering north Birmingham and south east Staffordshire, it is managed by the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.

History[edit]

The hospital has its origins in a Victorian house which was converted into a convalescent centre in 1943.[1] Two single-storey wards were added in the 1950s to act as a facility for the potential evacuation of patients from Birmingham in the event of a nuclear attack.[1] The Sheldon Unit and the Fothergill Block were added in 1967, the Richard Salt Unit opened in 1971 and new facilities for endoscopy, outpatients and diagnostic services followed in 2005.[1]

Services[edit]

Good Hope is a teaching hospital with library and learning facilities in the Partnership Learning Centre, which is part-funded by the Medical School of the University of Birmingham.[2] It has accident and emergency facilities.[2]
