Your Trust Charity is the registered charity of Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust. We are passionate about making a difference to people’s lives and are working hard to deliver a fundraising campaign that encapsulates everything our new flagship hospital, the Midland Metropolitan University Hospital, has to offer.

Building a world-class healthcare facility is no easy feat. Hospitals need to meet the healthcare needs of the communities they serve. Plus, they need to stand up to all the challenges of modern life and offer patients, colleagues, and visitors the facilities they deserve as standard and so much more.

Working hand in hand with our communities, our fundraising campaign, ‘We Are Metropolitan’ strives to enhance the experience of all people using our services.



Our fundraising campaign will support these three key areas at Midland Met:

  • The development of community spaces. These spaces will be within the hospital or the grounds, these might be play areas or a community garden.
  • Creating a healing environment. Healing and getting better is more than curing ailments – it is about creating a positive atmosphere. We are creating and running an arts and culture programme.
  • Enhanced research and development. The benefits of research and development to the NHS are notable. Our fundraising campaign opens the door to new research and development, not just with its facilities but also involving patients and the public.
