About us

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.

We provide a wide range of services to a population of 580,000 people in Worcestershire as well as caring for patients from surrounding counties and further afield.

Last year we provided care to more than 238,905 different patients – that is 40% of the Worcestershire population that received care at one of our hospitals.

We saw 2,293 patients every day, including:

  • 149,964 A&E attendances
  • 49,740 emergency admissions
  • 87,098 planned admissions
  • 5,332 births
  • 625,101 outpatient attendances

We employ nearly 6,000 people and around 800 local people volunteer with us helping to deliver care. We have an annual turnover of over £400 million. 

Our mission

Working together with our partners in health and social care we will provide safe, effective, personalised and integrated care for local people, delivered consistently across all services by skilled and compassionate staff.


4ward is our Trustwide culture change programme which is helping us build a more positive, supportive workplace for the benefit of our patients and colleagues. At its heart are our four 4ward Behaviours.
