About Us

UHB Data

As a health system serving the population of Birmingham and beyond, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) seeks to deliver excellent care today, and even better care tomorrow.

Data is critical to that mission, We use data to recognise and respond to the current and future needs of the population we serve.

Data can help us measure how well the treatments and care we provide meet those needs, to identify means to improve that care, and increasingly, to make research discoveries that can improve the care of not only our own local population, but people cared for beyond our own organisation.
