Who we are and what we do
The Trust provides acute and community healthcare services at St Helens and Whiston Hospitals, both of which are modern, high quality facilities. Community Intermediate Care services are delivered from Newton Community Hospital in Newton-le-Willows, and during 2019/20, the Trust became the provider of the Urgent Treatment Centre, operating from the Millennium Centre, which is in the centre of St Helens.
Alongside these community and secondary care services, the Trust also provides primary care services from the Marshalls Cross Medical Centre, which is situated inside St Helens Hospital. In addition, all St Helens Community Services were transferred to the Trust in April 2020.
The Trust has an excellent track record of providing high standards of care to a population of approximately 360,000 people, principally from St Helens, Knowsley, Halton, and Liverpool, but also from other neighbouring areas such as Warrington, Ormskirk and Wigan. In addition, the Mersey Regional Burns and Plastic Surgery Unit provides treatment for patients across Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales, the Isle of Man and other parts of the North West, serving a population of over 4 million.
We believe in choice and we understand the importance of choosing the right hospital. Our aim is to make sure you, the patient, are well informed and cared for to the highest possible standard and our dedicated workforce are committed to ensure you have an excellent patient experience.
