History


The first buildings on the site of Selly Oak Hospital were those of the King's Norton Union Workhouse. It was a place for the care of the poor and was one of many workhouses constructed throughout the country following the introduction of the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834. This act replaced the earlier system of poor relief, dating from 1601.

The hospital closed in 2012 upon completion of the new Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Relocation of the first services from Selly Oak began during the summer of 2010 when its A&E department moved to the new Q.E.Hospital on 16 June and over the next 7 days Critical Care and other departments moved step-by-step the 1.5 miles to the new hospital. On average one inpatient was moved every 5 minutes between 7 am and early evening. On the morning of 23 May 2010 a 'Service of Thanks' was held at Selly Oak Hospital to celebrate a century of caring and this was followed by a fun fair at which staff and patients were invited to "Take a Trip Down Memory Lane", sign a memory wall and contribute to an on-line memories website. The reorganisation was first planned in 1998 though it was not until October 2004 that planning approval was given by Birmingham City Council, with construction beginning during 2006

I should note, I know Selly has been done a good few times, just wish to mention we had a Meet up and had a group of 4 to go with, so was a little more interesting that usual! :)

Is it still viable to get in? I know they have cordoned off the whole site now, but this has got to be at the top of my wish list to get in!
Any 'tips' you could give a wannabe?!:p:p

It's still possible to get in, but not much left now. The building containing the morgue/autopsy room was still there when I went a couple weeks ago.

It seems the workers are leaving that bit till last. How very nice of them to cater to our urbexing needs.
