STRUCTURE: A consultation has been launched on centralising strike services at one of Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals Trust’s two hospital sites.

Both options allow for one hyper-acute unit only. However this unit could be at either City or Sandwell hospital.

The consultation will run from 1 February to 25 April 2012.

The services will be run in one of the two ways set out in the document until the opening of the new Midland Metropolitan Hospital in Smethwick in 2016/17.
