Welcome to Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

Changes to children's hospital services in Worcestershire from 7 September 2016

Your child's treatment, safety and comfort are of great importance to us and we want you to feel confident about where to take your child if they are ill. 

Due to a lack of specialist doctors we are not able to continue to provide inpatient children's beds on both the Alexandra Hospital and Worcestershire Royal Hospital sites. Inpatient children's beds will now be located on one site - Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

The children's ward at the Alexandra Hospital is now closed for admissions and the children's doctors and nurses have moved to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

Most of the children who attend the Alexandra Hospital will continue to be seen and treated there. It is only those who are seriously ill and require an inpatient bed who will receive their care at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

Don’t bring flu into hospital

Flu kills
Influenza (flu) is contagious and largely preventable. If you have symptoms of flu do not go to A&E or visit family and friends in hospital - you could pass it on to someone else.

Recognise it

The symptoms of flu include:

  • Sudden fever
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue

Contain it

If you have these symptoms:

  • Do not attend A&E or visit family and friends in the hospital
  • Contact 111 or your GP for further advice
  • If you are otherwise fit and healthy there is usually no reason to visit your GP
  • The best remedy is to stay home, keep warm and drink plenty of water
  • You can take over the counter remedies to lower temperature and relieve aches
  • You should visit your GP if you are over 65, pregnant, have underlying medical conditions or a weakened immune system


  • Catch it - Use a tissue for coughs and sneezes
  • Bin it - As soon as you can
  • Kill it - Wash your hands with soap and water
