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 2021/22, we provided care to more than 250,000 different patients – that is 40% of the Worcestershire population that received care at one of our hospitals.

Every day, we saw 692 different patients, including:

  • 166,904 A&E attendances
  • 151,357 Inpatients
  • 501,478 Outpatients
  • 4,939 births and 5,010 babies.

We employ over 6,000 people and around 800 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.
