The first buildings on the site of Selly Oak Hospital were those of the King’s Norton Union Workhouse, a separate infirmary was built in 1897 at a cost of £52,000. The population of the King’s Norton Union increased dramatically, and in 1907 extensions to the infirmary and the workhouse made provision for the growing numbers of poor people. This doubled the size of the main hospital building. The Woodlands Nurses’ Home was built at the same time to accommodate forty nurses. A small operating room was added to the infirmary.

In 1911, King’s Norton – no longer a rural area – left Worcestershire and became part of the City of Birmingham. The Birmingham Union was formed from the unions of King’s Norton, Aston and Birmingham. The King’s Norton Workhouse Infirmary was renamed Selly Oak Hospital. Selly Oak Hospital continued to grow, new operating theatres were added in 1931, and the biochemistry and pathology laboratories opened in 1934. Nurses had been trained at Selly Oak since 1897, but it wasn’t until 1942 that the School of Nursing was opened.

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 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.

Glad I decided to visit this one when I did with Mr Sam and MD, nice quiet wander before the circus arrives in town :laugh

There has been a big conversation/arguement over that already and most people agreed on it being in public.

I don't see what the big deal is personally. If you're an explorer you can still explore it I'm sure. If you're just a tourist with your gas mask and fancy dress, tough really.
