Solihull Hospital, based near to Solihull town centre, provides a range of outpatient, inpatient and emergency care services for its local community. It is also the regional centre for dermatology (the treatment of skin conditions).
Since April 2011, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust has also been the provider of community healthcare services for Solihull residents. Community Services in Solihull provide a wide range of care in people’s own homes and in community-based settings such as GP surgeries, community clinics and care homes.
Services include supporting local people to stay healthy and well, such as stop smoking and community dentistry; to pro-active care to support people to stay independent in a community setting, such as ‘virtual’ wards and community nursing. The Community Services teams also provide much needed support in a crisis. This may be rapid response nursing, hospice at home and intermediate care.
By being a provider of both hospital and community services, Heart of England has the opportunity to shape the way care is provided across traditional boundaries.
The Trust is working with local people and with GPs and colleagues in the local authority and voluntary sector through a newly evolving ‘Integrated Care’ partnership. The aim is to develop services that:
- Support patients to stay healthy and well
- Provide personalised care in patients’ own homes and community settings
- Prevent unplanned admission to hospital and provide rapid access to diagnostic and expert services when needed

Solihull Hospital first opened its doors as a Workhouse in 1839 for the ‘undeserving poor’, including the homeless, sick, aged and those with smallpox and tuberculosis (TB).One hundred years later the circumstances of war turned it into a hospital.
A purpose-built Solihull District General Hospital was opened in 1994.
Two years later Solihull and Heartlands Hospitals merged to create Birmingham Heartlands & Solihull NHS Trust and in April 2005, this became Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust.
Community healthcare services for the borough transferred to the Heart of England Foundation Trust from Solihull Care Trust in April 2011 under the national Transforming Community Services programme.
