West Berkshire Community Hospital

Welcome to the West Berkshire Community Hospital (WBCH). The Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust offers a wide range of services to help provide care closer to home to the population of Newbury and the surrounding area.

We have on site a renal dialysis unit called the Enborne unit.

The outpatient clinics available at WBCH can be found below, along with key information including contact details. Patients can access any of the services via a referral from their GP or another health care professional.

The clinics can offer patients a combination of face-to-face and video/telephone clinics.
