Julian Emms; Chief Executive

Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist mental health and community health services trust.

We operate from more than 100 sites across the county including community hospitals, Prospect Park Hospital, clinics and GP practices.

We share some of our community hospitals with other NHS providers such as Royal Berkshire Hospital and Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals, which also run services from these sites. We also provide health care and therapy to people in their own homes.

Our services include:

  • Inpatient rehabilitation wards at community hospitals
  • Community nursing
  • Health visiting
  • Allied health such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and podiatry
  • Learning disability community-based services
  • Mental health services - inpatient and community-based
  • Community dentistry for children and adults who have special needs that prevent them getting dental care from a general dentist
  • Children's services
  • Prison health services
  • Some of the walk-in health centres and minor injuries units in Berkshire.

The majority of people we care for are supported in their own homes. Find out more about us by visiting our website.

We provide specialist mental health and community health services to a population of around 900,000 within Berkshire.


As well as our community hospitals, Prospect Park Hospital, clinics and GP Practices, we also provide health care and therapy to people in their own homes.


The vast majority of the people we care for are supported in their own homes. We have 252 mental health inpatient beds and almost 200 community hospital beds in five locations and we employ more than 4,000 staff.


We work closely with our commissioners to develop services that meet the needs of our diverse population – aiming to help people remain independent at home as far as possible.


We provide many of our services in partnership with Local Authorities and also work closely with GPs, voluntary sector organisations and others.
