Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust provides local general hospital and community services to around 260,000 people in Walsall and the surrounding areas.
We are the only provider of NHS acute care in Walsall, providing inpatients and outpatients at the Manor Hospital as well as a wide range of services in the community.
Walsall Manor Hospital houses the full range of district general hospital services under one roof. The £170 million development of our Pleck Road site was completed in 2010 and the continued up-grading of existing areas ensures the Trust has state of the art operating theatres, treatment areas and equipment.
We provide high quality, friendly and effective community health services from some 60 sites including health centres and GP surgeries. Covering Walsall and beyond, our multidisciplinary services include rapid response in the community and homebased care, so that those with long term conditions and the frail elderly, can remain in their own homes to be cared for.
The Trust’s Palliative Care Centre in Goscote is our base for a wide range of palliative care and end of life services. Our teams, in the centre and the community, provide high quality medical, nursing and therapy care for local people living with cancer and other serious illnesses, as well as offering support for their families and carers.
Our extensive Lifestyle Management service provides smoking cessation, drug and alcohol support, a Physical Activity team and a Health Training service. Working with all areas of the Trust, the team ensure lifestyle management features across our range of healthcare services.
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust formed on 1 April 2011, bringing together the teams at Walsall Hospitals NHS Trust and NHS Walsall Community Health.
