Modern Slavery Statement
In accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (the ‘Trust’) annually publishes a Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement on the steps it has taken in the previous year to ensure that modern slavery (i.e. slavery and human trafficking), is not taking place in any part of its own business or any of its supply chains.
Modern Slavery Statement, 2018/19
Our annual turnover for 2018-19 was £1.6 billion.
We provide direct clinical care to over 2 million patients every year, serving a regional, national and international population.
We have a workforce of around 20,000 staff on Trust sites across Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield and Solihull Hospital. The nationally-renowned Birmingham Chest Clinic is also an important part of the Trust and we operate a number of satellite units that treat patients as near to their homes and families as possible. We have due diligence processes in place to ensure that as an employer we develop and protect our staff and provide an inclusive, safe and healthy place to work in.
Like many other large organisations, our supply chain can be complex. We expect our business partners to take all reasonable steps to prevent any cases of unethical or abusive labour practices.
We are aware of the issues around modern slavery and human trafficking and are committed to stopping it within our communities.
The Board approved its Modern Slavery Statement for publication to ensure slavery is not taking place in any part of its own business or any of its supply chains. The statement was signed by the Chief Executive Officer, Dr. David Rosser.
