BIRMINGHAM Children’s Hospital has fought of stiff competition to be been crowned ‘Provider Trust of the Year’ at the Health Service Journal awards.
The award recognises organisations that are providing excellent, patient-centric care built on strong clinical engagement, a culture of continuous improvement and those with an eye to the future.

Dame Christine Braddock, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Chairman, said: “To be named as Provider Trust of the Year is incredible. It is great recognition of the commitment of all our staff, the professionalism and commitment of our board, governors and partners, who all work tirelessly to improve what we do for children and young people. A huge well done to everyone for making such a difference!”
David Melbourne, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Interim Chief Executive, added: “We are incredibly humbled to receive this prestigious national award. We’ve worked really hard over the last few years to be a great place to be cared for and a great place to work. It’s fantastic that the hard work of our hospital teams has been recognised in this way.
“This award will be a real boost for our all our staff as we work hard to secure our exciting future, but we are by no means a perfect organisation – there will always be more we can do to make what we do even better.”
