Our vision and values 

Our organisational vision is: working to improve lives 

The vision is backed up by the values we operate under:





Our services include: 

Mental Health Services – we provide a wide range of treatment and support to young people, adults and older people experiencing mental illness both as inpatients and within the community. This includes treatment in secure and specialised settings. A number of our specialist services have achieved accreditation from the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Community Health Services – our diverse range of community health services provide support and treatment to both adults and children. We deliver this care in community hospitals, health centres, GP surgeries and in our patients’ homes. 

Learning Disabilities Services – we provide crisis support and inpatient services and our community learning disability teams work in partnership with local councils to provide assessment and support for adults with learning disabilities. 

As part of our commitment to driving up quality in services for people with learning disabilities we are proud to say that we have signed up to the Driving Up Quality Code. Our self -assessment contains the full details of our commitment. 

Social Care – We provide personalised social care support to people with a range of needs, including people with learning disabilities or mental illness, supporting people to live independently.
