Welcome to the Worcester City Inpatient Unit
Changes to Visiting Times
Due the current coronavirus outbreak our community hospitals are currently closed to visitors.
To protect our patients, staff and the wider community, all our wards/inpatient units are now closed until further notice.
We apologise for any inconvenience, but we hope you understand these steps have been taken with the health and wellbeing of our patients and staff at heart.
What are community hospitals/rehab units?
We have seven community hospitals/rehab units across Worcestershire. They provide a range of inpatient and outpatient services and support people to recovery from surgery or illness when they don't require acute care but neither can they be treated at home. They are a key part of our local healthcare system.
