South Worcestershire Primary Care Trust is responsible for commissioning health care in West Worcestershire, to meet national and local priorities for improving health, tackling health inequalities and modernising services.

Over the current three year period, South Worcestershire's allocation will increase in cash terms by £60.6 million or over 30 per cent. That is a significant level of investment and will deliver real benefits and results for the people of West Worcestershire.
