Walsall Healthcare Clinical Services Strategy

The Walsall Healthcare National Health Service Trust provides local general and community services to approximately 260,000 people in Walsall and the surrounding area, United Kingdom. As part of the overall integrated business plan for the Trust, a clinical services strategy had to be developed in 2010. The strategy had to span a five-year timeline, provide detail of service provision of the Trust in acute and community settings, and provide an overview of future plans for services to be delivered by the Trust.
