Welcome letter from the Chief Executive

Thank you for your interest in Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust; we’re a truly integrated healthcare provider covering Walsall and beyond, with multidisciplinary acute and community services that allow us to provide the right care in the right place; such as 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.  We provide the full range of district general hospital services in Walsall Manor Hospital and we provide high quality, friendly and effective community health services and from some 60 sites including health centres and GP surgeries.

Our recent journey has been one of turnaround and reconfiguration, following the CQC’s inspection of us in September 2015.  With a great deal of effort and energy we have now tackled the short-term challenges highlighted by their report and, having turned the corner, we have begun to focus on changes that enhance our longer-term plans. The CQC re-inspected us in June 2017 and their report, published in December, rated us as ‘Requires Improvement’ overall, and ‘Good’ in the Caring domain.

These important roles will join us at a time where our focus is shifting from the short-term to the longer term, from immediate challenges to more strategic issues about our role in the wider health and care economy as well to making sustainable change in the way we work together as trust  We know we cannot deliver on our strategy along and, we are active partners in a number of collaborative ventures in the area such as the Black Country Alliance and Walsall Together, both of which you can read more about in this website. 

You will join an organisation with a clear sense of the added value we provide into our communities, and a senior team that is focused on sustainability and innovation, not on the short-term demands of turnaround.  We have got off to a strong start on our journey but we know we still have a long way to go to deliver our vision to become your partners for first class integrated care. If the opportunity to join an integrated organisation and an energised senior team, I hope you will read more on this website.  I will be happy to speak to you by contacting Robin Staveley of GatenbySanderson on 0113 205 6097.
