Q Just wondering whether an email address for the hospital has become available? Similarly to a previous post I have tried the old address and they have replied saying they do not organise electives. This also relates to the other Birmingham hospitals which appear to have the same problem! Thanks

Q Can I have a valid email address to enquire and apply medical elective here, because the email that the page provided replied and told me that they do not deal with electives and I should contact the hospital. Thanks.
