Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust provides mental health care to residents of Birmingham, Solihull and to communities in the West Midlands and beyond.

Serving a culturally and socially-diverse population of over a 1.3 million people spread over 172 square miles, it’s one of the largest mental health foundation trusts in the UK and employs a dedicated workforce of around 4,000 staff.

In the spring of 2018 work started on the John Black site turning the present building from an inpatient to an outpatient facility. The existing cast iron atmospheric boilers were replaced with 3No Ethos 110kW wall mounted condensing boilers aswell as a Mikrovent 400 low loss header/air, dirt separator. The stainless steel boilers were installed on free standing frames and provide comfortable space heating throughout the reconfigured wings. The building services design was carried out by Waterman Group (B/ham) and installed by Ward Services (Warwickshire).

In addition, the new LPHW system is unvented by way of a pre-commissioned Mikrofilll 400 pressurisation package.                                                                        

The Trust also has its own charity, Caring Minds which directly raises money for the service users, carers and staff of the Trust.
