Overview of the Trust

The Western Health and Social Care Trust was established on 1 April 2007. The Trust provides health and social care services across the council areas of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and Limavady, in the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council. Services are provided from a number of hospitals and community facilities (130 different facilities across the Trust area), and people’s own homes across a mix of urban and rural communities. The Western Health and Social Care Trust has an annual budget of approximately £800m and employs almost 12,500 staff. 

The Western Trust has several hospitals located throughout the west of Northern Ireland, these are:

Londonderry Hospitals: Altnagelvin Hospital, Lakeview Hospital, Waterside Hospital, Roe Valley Hospital and Grangewood.

Tyrone Hospitals: Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex and Tyrone and Fermanagh Hospital.

Fermanagh Hospital: the South West Acute Hospital


The Trust’s catchment area extends over 4,842km2 and serves a population of approximately 300,000, which represents 16% of the overall population of Northern Ireland. This, alongside high levels of multiple deprivation and related health inequalities in some areas of the Trust’s geography, creates significant challenges for service delivery for the Trust as a health and social care provider.

The majority of services are provided in community-based settings with access to specialist inpatient services available from a number of hospitals.

South West Acute Hospital (SWAH) is a modern, 100% single-room ensuite accommodation facility, which provides a wide range of major acute hospital services to patients from Fermanagh and Tyrone and beyond.
