At the Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, staff pride themselves on not only leading through clinical excellence, but also by creating an environment where all staff are valued and appreciated. To achieve this, the Trust has embarked on an exciting new strategy focused on continuous improvement. Our vision is to be the preferred hospital of choice for our community and to continue to provide a comprehensive, high quality and accessible range of emergency and elective services to all our patients.
The Countess of Chester Hospital is a £270 million organisation with over 5,700 staff caring for a population of over a quarter of a million residents.
