Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust works with other organisations, groups and individuals to achieve its aims and objectives.
We work closely with our partners within the NHS including:
North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
NHS Northwest (the North West Strategic Health Authority)
and neighbouring Trusts.
Our role is very important in the local economy as we are a major employer and purchaser of goods and services.
Anyone who uses our services are also seen as partners in their own care. We aim to work with you to provide care and treatment which you understand and which has the best possible outcome for you. If you are unhappy at any stage, please let us know.
The partnership between management and staff at the Trust is vital to ensure that services are delivered effectively and efficiently. A range of consultation and communication methods with staff ensures this partnership works.
