Our profile

Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust was established on 1 July 2011 to manage the vast majority of the services which were previously managed by Worcestershire Primary Care NHS Trust's Provider Arm, as well as the mental health services that were managed by Worcestershire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust. Bringing together the range of services provided by the two organisations has offered opportunities to improve integration and partnership working which are central to the new Trust’s objectives.

The Trust serves a population of approximately 560,000 across an area of approximately 500 square miles, with a relatively high proportion of residents aged 65 and above. Major urban areas include the towns of Worcester, Bromsgrove, Kidderminster, Redditch, Evesham, and Malvern. It is in these areas that the majority of the population live. The Trust’s services are mainly commissioned by the three Clinical Commissioning Groups in Worcestershire.

What we do

We provide high quality health and care services across all stages of life. These are delivered in peoples own homes, community clinics, outpatient departments, community inpatient beds, prisons, schools and GP practices. We also provide in-reach services into acute hospitals, nursing and residential homes and social care settings.

We are the main provider of community, specialist primary care and mental health services to the population of Worcestershire. We also provide community and specialist services over our borders. Many of our services are integrated with Worcestershire County Council and we work in partnership across the county with voluntary organisations, our commissioners and communities to deliver high quality services.

We provide our services to Worcestershire’s 560,000 residents across an area of approximately 500 square miles; supporting people to live independently at home, reducing the need for patients to go into hospital.
