About Birmingham

What do I need to know about the Operating Theatres at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham?
Here at QEHB we have 42 operating theatres and procedure rooms that cater for multiple specialities. As we are a Major Trauma Centre we have a very high level of emergencies within our operating theatres on a daily basis.

We have 5 recovery rooms located on the Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre site, with a large workforce who cares for a range of post operative cases from minor/local anaesthetic cases to major ITU cases. Recovery staff build advanced airway management skills, pain management skills and many more - our recovery areas are very similar to that of an ITU.
Each of our operating theatres has an effective learning environment, to enable all staff to continue to build and develop highly skilled techniques as scrub practitioners. This enables staff to scrub for elective, emergency and transplantation procedures.
