My Part in the Midland Met

From now until we move into Midland Met, we will be sharing updates with you about the many people involved in the project and the role they each play.   

The successful opening of Midland Metropolitan University Hospital relies on many people, teams and stakeholders. Once open, it will have a far-reaching impact – not only on those we care for but also on staff and our community in terms of regeneration, jobs, housing, charitable endeavours and so much more. 

Getting us to Midland Met is a team effort and the staff at the Trust all have a part to play in making it #morethanahospital.

Find out about all the different people and roles that will help make our move a reality below:


Zaheer Iqbal, portering and security manager, has been at the Trust for four years. He’ll be involved with workforce planning at Midland Met for both departments, the design for the security control room and the positioning of cameras, including access control.
He said: “The design of the new hospital means that the back of house will be more efficient and private for patients when transported from A to B. Our new hospital will also benefit from enhanced infection control by reducing cross-contamination due to less traffic in these areas. 

“I have visited the site a few times, and I can see massive improvements on each visit. The size of the hospital is breathtaking, and the large windows for the patients and families to admire the views are positive features. The décor is colour coded with natural light flooding in, and it’s a welcoming environment.”
