The Trust, which manages Leighton Hospital in Crewe, Victoria Infirmary in Northwich, and Elmhurst Intermediate Care Centre in Winsford, was established as an NHS Trust in April 1991 and became a Foundation Trust in April 2008.

We employ almost 5,000 members of staff, have 540 hospital beds, with a range of services including accident and emergency, maternity, outpatients, therapies, and children's health.

The Trust is also responsible for the provision of a range of community services for people across South Cheshire and Vale Royal, working in partnership with local GPs and Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

During the pandemic, the Trust was recognised nationally for its ‘Be Safe Be EquiPPEd’ campaign, which aimed to make the Trust as safe as possible for staff and patients, through supporting the correct use of PPE. We were also recognised nationally for our workforce health and wellbeing initiatives.

At Mid Cheshire, we really value our staff and appreciate that in order to give our patients the best quality, compassionate care, we also need to look after our colleagues.
