North East Wales NHS Trust

North East Wales NHS Trust

North East Wales NHS Trust (Welsh: Ymddiriedolaeth GIG Gogledd Ddwyrain Cymru) is an NHS Trust in Wales. The headquarters of the Trust is in the Maelor Hospital, in Wrexham. It was founded on 1 April 1999, when the NHS Trusts in Wales were reconfigured. The Trust provides secondary care services for the Wrexham and Flintshire Local Authority areas, including mental health care - a population of around 300,000 people, through one major acute hospital, five community hospitals, and a variety of clinics. The Trust reported a budget deficit of £3.6 million at the end of the 2005/06 financial year.

The Chairman is Michael Williams[1], a former leader of Wrexham Country Borough Council, and the Chief Executive is Mary Burrows[2].

It was confirmed in April 2008 that the North East Wales NHS Trust intends to merge with the Conwy & Denbighshire NHS Trust, creating a new trust covering the preserved county area of Clwyd. Both trusts agreed to the merger, and approval from the health minister was given on 22 May 2008.[1] The new trust became operational as the North Wales NHS Trust as of 1 July 2008, although both names are still in usage [2]
