Birmingham’s new £12m care facility to create 80 jobs

A new care facility that is set to open in Birmingham next month will bring 80 new jobs in nursing, medical and technological roles to the city, according to reports.

The Bupa Care Home, which has been built on the former site of BBC studios at Pebble Mill, Edgbaston, will include provision for 62 patients in private bedrooms. It also comprises a rooftop terrace, landscaped garden with dining area and pizza oven, a beauty salon and multi-purpose activities room.

Of these rooms, 26 will be nursing rooms, 26 for people living with dementia and ten to be designated residential rooms with en suite bathrooms.

The new facility is to be constructed in an area that is increasingly filling up with healthcare and medical tech companies, including the Birmingham Dental Hospital and a Circle private hospital due to open in 2019.

Though nurses, carers, activity co-ordinators and managers have been identified as the key roles to fill, the home will also require specialist medical technology experts on-hand.

General manager Gareth Richards said: "It's been a huge but incredibly rewarding project.

"To see everything happen, from the initial design to the building itself, and to witness first hand the thought, care and effort that has gone into making it such a striking building, has been tremendously exciting.

"We can't wait to welcome the first of our residents to their new home.”
