Welcome to the Best Craniofacial Units in the UK website
. This site is intended to showcase and support the sterling work performed by children’s hospitals in the UK, and in particular that of the Birmingham University Hospital Craniofacial Unit.

Looking for support?

If you would like to know more about the sort of services and care offered by children’s hospitals in the UK, and what a craniofacial unit actually does, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.


The Birmingham Craniofacial Unit based at Birmingham Children’s Hospital is one of four nationally designated craniofacial centres. They manage patients with abnormalities of the skull and face.

A multidisciplinary team carries out this complex surgery, led by a plastic surgeon , a neurosurgeon and a maxillofacial surgeon supported by registrars and staff from speech and language therapy, medical genetics, ophthalmology and clinicians from a wide variety of other disciplines.
