Construction work for Circle Birmingham Hospital at Pebble Mill is now under way – a 77-week building project. At a ceremony on 12 July 2018, Circle’s Group Medical Director Massoud Fouladi joined construction and property partners to symbolically cut the turf on the site.

Key stakeholders from Circle Health, Medical Properties Trust, Calthorpe Estates, Bryden Wood, Gleeds and Birmingham City Council gathered for the event at the former BBC Pebble Mill site where the new facility is being built by Lincoln-based Simons Group.
The £21.85 million private patients’ facility in the heart of Edgbaston’s world renowned Medical Quarter will be an addition to Circle Health’s existing portfolio, which includes facilities in Bath, Nottingham and Reading.
