Prof. Sir Bruce Keogh

The University of Birmingham has strongly supported the merger of Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Birmingham Women’s Hospital Trusts and we are delighted that the new Trust has secured someone of the national stature and unrivalled experience of Sir Bruce Keogh as its next chair.

Sir Bruce Keogh will be a huge asset to the Trust. We look forward to welcoming him back to the city and to working closely with him through our Birmingham Health Partners alliance.
