Commemorative artwork plan

Published on 30/09/2022

As part of our ongoing plans to recognise and remember the amazing contributions of our colleagues in response to the pandemic, we are delighted to announce that we will be creating and installing artwork across our hospital sites and community locations.

Our Trust is made up of thousands of individuals who make our team strong, kind and compassionate. Each member of staff represents a unique piece of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust and we would like the art installations to reflect every part of our team. We would therefore like to invite all staff to be part of this project.

Over the coming months, we will be photographing staff across our sites. Your photograph will form part of a large piece of art, that will include headshots of our many staff members.

If you would like to be part of this piece of history and feature in this artwork, you can join one of our upcoming photo shoots. We will be updating the website with new dates and locations over the coming months, so please keep an eye out if you would like to take part.

Upcoming sessions

Friday 30 September 13:00 – 14:00 Health Information Centre, Heartlands Hospital (top of main entrance escalators by pharmacy)
Wednesday 5 October 10:00 – 11:00 Health Information Centre, Heartlands Hospital (top of main entrance escalators by pharmacy)

Wednesday 5 October 13:00 – 14:00 Seasons Restaurant, Solihull Hospital

We would love to see as many of you involved as possible, to make this a really special piece of work.

If you have any queries, please contact Communications.
