Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the organisation which manages Leighton Hospital, Crewe; the Victoria Infirmary, Northwich and Elmhurst Intermediate care Centre, Winsford. The Trust was originally established as an NHS trust in April 1991 and became a Foundation Trust in April 2008.
It employs approximately 3,200 members of staff and has around 540 hospital beds.
A range of services, including A&E, maternity, outpatients, therapies and children's health are provided for people predominantly from the Crewe, Nantwich, Congleton, Middlewich and Northwich areas, although patients from other areas are also cared for.
In October 2005 the Trust opened a purpose-built NHS Treatment Centre, specialising in day surgery and diagnostics for a range of conditions. In 2008, the Trust supported the opening of a Macmillan Cancer Unit, one of the most modern in the country, which provides a range of cancer treatments and services for patients across Cheshire.
