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 upgrading 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 Centre’s and GP surgeries. Covering Walsall and beyond, our multidisciplinary services include rapid response in the community and home-based 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.

Vision on future apprenticeship

Our vision and values

Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust is guided by five strategic objectives which combine to form the overall ‘vision’ for the organisation.

Complementing this are our ‘values’, a set of individual behaviours that we wish to project amongst our workforce in order to deliver effective care for all.

Our vision: Caring for Walsall together

vision 300x273

We recently revised our vision to be “Caring for Walsall together” to reflect our ambition for safe integrated care, delivered in partnership with social care, mental health, public health and associated charitable and community organisations. It is underpinned by five strategic objectives which are to:

  • Provide Safe, high-quality care; We will deliver excellent quality of care as measured by an outstanding CQC rating by 2022
  • Care at Home; We will host the integration of Walsall together partners, addressing health inequalities and delivering care closer to home
  • Work Closely with Partners; We will deliver sustainable best practice in secondary care, through working with partners across the Black Country and West Birmingham System
  • Value our Colleagues; We will be an inclusive organisation which lives our organisational values without exception
  • Use Resources Well; We will deliver optimum value by using our resources efficiently and responsibly
