About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Birmingham) Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Birmingham) Birmingham B15 2TH
I came into the new UHB with some trepidation having seen the vastness of the place but it's reputation excelled . I was referred from another regional hospital after receiving a cat bite over the weekend , referred because UHB was an expert in bites and have a dedicated hand surgery team. The previous hospital had called through and on arrival at ED I was seen immediately ( literally) by hand doctor on call who said id need surgery and IV antibiotics. No messing about seen and operated on within 4 hours . The hand surgery team who have operated were caring, compassionate and very thorough and I cannot thank them enough, along with supporting team in anaesthetics who were just lovely. welcome short stay ward was also fantastic, clean and spacious! The nursing team were fabulous working together really well under the fantastic sisters. Everyone was so friendly , worked really hard and lovely to patients . Working in the NHS myself this was an exemplary example of care professionals working together for the good of the patient . Highly recommend
