Job Description

Our trust manages three hospitals in Worcestershire: the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch; Kidderminster Hospital and Treatment Centre and Worcestershire Royal Hospital. We also manage a surgery ward at Evesham Community Hospital.

We provide acute services to a population of over 500,000 and our staff are recognised as providing good and outstanding patient-centred care.
