Wychavon District Health Collaborative

Wychavon District Health Collaborative logo

Wychavon District Health Collaborative (WDHC) is a group of people and organisations working together at a local level to meet the needs of the communities they serve.

We want to help people to remain well for longer. We can do this by making sure all communities have access to support and services which help us to be well and prevent an increase in the severity of their needs.

With a population of 132,500, Wychavon is the largest district within the Worcestershire County.

As we have many differing communities across a large geographic area and with the need to remain informed and affect change at a local level, we have established three place-based working groups.

These groups are made up of local organisations and Primary Care Networks (groups of GP Practices also called PCNS), who really understand their communities.
