About the Trust


2002 marked the establishment of the Camden and Islington Mental Health and Social Care Trust. In March 2008, the organisation became the first Care Trust to be designated as a Foundation Trust and to be licenced by NHS Improvement. Today, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) provides patients with high-standard, secure, and innovative treatment in the community, at their homes, and in hospitals. The Trust offers services to adults of working age, individuals with learning impairments, and senior citizens in the Greater London area, focusing on Camden and Islington. In addition, the hospital provides Kingston residents with substance abuse and primary mental health treatment services. The Trust also has specialised programmes that offer assistance and treatment to London-based Veterans, youth caught in the cycle of gang culture, and perinatal mental health disorders.

LIFE IN London

London is one of the world’s most visited cities, the city has something for everyone. From history and culture to great food and exceedingly good times. London has about 2000 years of history and is deeply cosmopolitan and exotic. It is a fact that one-third of Londoners were born overseas. With such diversity, London’s cultural dynamism makes it among the world’s most international cities.

Transportation Hub


London's public transport is considered as one of the best system in the world. Although the city has great roads and connectivity, London is the most walkable city on the planet. Trust us, there’s nothing better than a walk along the Thames.

The main source of public transport in London revolves around the Underground or the Tube as it is called by Londoners. This extensive network of 12 lines can get you to most places in the centre of the city quickly

The people outside the UK believe that the capital's transport system is one of the safest and most efficient public transport networks in the world. The Underground and the ever-cheerful London cabbie come in for particularly high praise.


Food & Drinks


London's food doesn't come any more traditional - or tasty - than good old pie and mash. The Londoners particularly love to have tea a lot. 

Fish and chips are a delicious, fried dish that consists of batter-coated, fried fish and chips. This delightful yet straightforward meal originated in England and has become one of the most famous London foods. It is best served hot and is eaten as a main course – but you can find it as a take-away snack from food stalls around London.

The English Breakfast is one of the best London foods, and many cafes and pubs serve it at any time of the day.

The city has numerous eateries, restaurants and pubs that you find in every corner serving multiple cuisines from Mexican tortillas, Italian pastas, Indian kebabs, Chinese dishes to tasty Japanese sushi. Almost every street in the city has cafes and pubs that exuberates anyone and everyone.  



London welcomes everyone and represents the cosmopolitan world, you will definitely find it as an extremely amazing place to live and add value to your lifestyle. Amazingly, the ‘Big Smoke’ is home to more than 270 nationalities and 300 languages.

The society of London is a multicultural society and the people are welcoming of every culture and creed.

The level of politeness among British people may surprise you at first as it’s certainly more prevalent than in some other countries. Don’t worry though because it’s easy to get used to; just say ‘thank you’ when someone has given you something or moved out of the way for you, ‘please’ when asking for something and ‘sorry’ should you bump into someone or inconvenience them slightly.
