Birmingham Children’s Hospital is a fundraising hospital, meaning that charitable donations are key to making them what they are: a centre of paediatric excellence that the whole country depends on. Their aim for the 250,000 children that they treat each year is that their family knows that the care of their child is their most precious priority.

How to access the service
