Roadshow

Rev up your excitement as we’re coming to a neighbourhood near you!

We’ve transformed a disused patient transport van into a rolling billboard for the new Midland Metropolitan University Hospital and have been driving into our local communities to let them know what’s happening.

We are talking about the new hospital, what services will remain at Sandwell and City Hospitals and what will transfer to Midland Met.

We want our communities to know that Midland Met is more than a hospital, so come and talk to us at one of the engagement sessions. We’ll also be happy to listen to your comments, feedback and address concerns.

Previous events

Have you suffered a stroke or cared for someone who has?

To ensure we have the right services in the correct place ahead of the opening of Midland Metropolitan University Hospital, we are proposing to make changes to the way we deliver some of the care across the Trust.

We are continuing our focus on stroke services and have produced a document that outlines the proposed changes we wish to discuss with stroke survivors, their carers and loved ones and other interested parties across Sandwell and West Birmingham.

We are proposing three different ways in which we care for these patients which are detailed in the report accessed via this link: Stroke Service Publication leaflet(opens in a new tab).

As part of our engagement about the service, we held a workshop at the YMCA West Bromwich on 23 November, where we heard from our community about what they thought of the the improvements we have made so far.

A Bereavement Workshop

  • A Bereavement Workshop was held at Brasshouse Community Centre. Friends and family members of loved ones lost under the care of our Trust told us about their experiences with our bereavement services and what they thought needed improving.

A Food and Nutrition

  • A Food and Nutrition in hospital settings session was held at Sandwell Hospital, with discussions around what improvements could be made.

A Focus on Frailty

  • A Focus on Frailty event took place at Yemeni Community Association in Sandwell. The current and new frailty pathways for the Midland Metropolitan University Hospital were discussed and vital feedback was gathered from staff, patients, carers and community organisations.

A Carers Workshop

  • A Carers Workshop took place Brasshouse Community Centre. Carers shared their experiences and talked about how we could work together to improve the services we provide, as well as how the Trust could support them in the process.
