2nd September 2013

Andrew Mitchell MP has visited Birmingham Children’s Hospital to meet with the Chief Executive, Sarah Jane Marsh and the staff of the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) to see the specialist care that they offer to children from Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield.

Birmingham Children’s Hospital is the biggest provider of children’s heart and bypass surgery and one of only four hospitals in the UK that treats just children. The PICU provides a vast range of specialist medical services, performing complicated operations to many young patients in the West Midlands who rely on their services.

Andrew Mitchell MP, said “It was a humbling and uplifting experience to see firsthand how hardworking the staff on the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit team are. Their commitment to good quality care was quite evident and from hearing the positive comments from the parents of the young patients receiving care on the Unit on the day of my visit.

The Chief Executive and Senior Management at Birmingham Children’s Hospital are working towards further improving and developing specialist services and efficiency at the Hospital with substantial funding placed aside for improvements.”
