In accordance with plans approved by the government in December, and following a three-month consultation by the West Midlands strategic health authority, the Heart of England becomes one of the UK's largest NHS trusts, including four hospitals: the Birmingham Heartlands, Solihull, Birmingham Chest Clinic and now the Good Hope. The trust, rated the most successful financially in 2005-06, will serve a population of around 1 million, across an area that extends from Solihull to South Staffordshire.
