About us

AEC staff shot

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust provides hospital-based services from three main sites - the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch, Kidderminster Hospital and Treatment Centre, and Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester - as well as some community-based services. 

We provide a wide range of services to a population of 592,158 people in Worcestershire as well as caring for patients from surrounding counties and further afield.

In 2022/23, we provided care to more than 250,000 different patients – that's 40% of the Worcestershire population that received care at one of our hospitals, including:

  • 165,086 A&E attendances
  • 143,956 inpatients
  • 593,451 outpatients
  • 4,875 births

We also carried out:

  • 19,379 operations
  • 21,407 MRI scans
  • 71,378 CT scans
  • 70,997 non-obstetric ultrasound scans
  • 190,276 plain film X-rays
  • 20,902 endoscopies

We employ over 7,000 people and over 130 local people volunteer with us helping to deliver care. We have an annual turnover of nearly £600 million

Our catchment population extends beyond Worcestershire itself, as patients are also attracted from neighbouring areas including South Birmingham, Warwickshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and South Staffordshire. This results in a catchment population which varies between 420,000 and 800,000 depending on the service.
