For nearly 100 years Orchard Healthcare (through its original trading name the `WHCA` (the Worcester Hospitals Contributors Association) has been providing healthcare plans and benefits to thousands of employees in some of the leading employers throughout Worcestershire.

After providing massive funding for the county`s hospitals in the years up to the launch of the NHS in 1946 the organisation turned towards the provision of a wide range of convalescence and medical benefits for local working people employed in the county`s most enlightened employers.

How Orchard Healthcare influences employees health and wellbeing
