Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (MCHFT) provides good quality, safe and effective healthcare to the people of Cheshire and beyond.
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.
It employs more than 4,500 members of staff, has around 540 hospital beds, and provides a range of services including A&E, maternity, outpatients, therapies, and children's health.
The Trust is also part of Central Cheshire Integrated Care Partnership (CCICP), a new and unique local health partnership that provides a range of community health services for people across South Cheshire and Vale Royal.
Significant investment in recent years has meant a great deal of clinical expansion has taken place at the Trust and it can now boast about having some of the very best clinical facilities.
In October 2005 the Trust opened a purpose-built NHS Treatment Centre, which specialises in day surgery and diagnostics for a range of conditions. The centre also benefitted from a £23million redevelopment project in 2014/15, which led to the creation of new critical care bays, operating theatres, and a Surgical Admissions Lounge.
MCHFT is continually working towards providing the safest and highest quality care possible and is regularly recognised for its work and achievements. The Trust is consistently named as one of the top employers in the NHS, is one of the handful of acute hospital Trusts in England to have a ‘Good’ rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and achieved the best results of all acute Trusts in the 2016 national NHS Staff Survey.
MCHFT also has a formal clinical partnership with the University Hospitals of North Midlands and benefits from links with the University of Chester, Manchester Metropolitan University and Staffordshire University.
