I was given access to the site over two days with permission from University Hospitals Birmingham and Coleman & Co. demolition group.
Selly Oak Hospital started life as King's Norton Union Workhouse in 1872. Departments started to move from the site in 2010 into the new QE super hospital nearby.
There are still offices in use on the site and the Woodlands Nurses Home is still occupied by offices and accommodation.
I am led to believe that most pre-1960 (red brick) buildings will not be demolished but converted, the rest (such as A&E and Outpatients will be going). They are currently demolishing some of the buildings at the infirmary end of the site, but if you look closely most are not original buildings but later developments. Whether this turns out to be true is another matter, time will tell!!
