The establishment of the Western Trust on 1st April 2007 following the RPA saw a merger of three former trusts – Altnagelvin, Foyle and Sperrin Lakeland. The Western Trust covers 5 local council areas – almost 5,000 kilometres – and provides services to around 290,000 people. The trust employs almost 12,500 staff and spends some £439 million on a wide range of health and social care services. It has lands and properties valued at around £344 million.

  3. Integrity in everything we do
  4. Equality
  5. Working in partnership
  6. Using our resources efficiently and effectively.
