Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust delivers integrated mental health, learning disability, and community health services of the highest standard. The Trust was established in 2002 to provide services in the areas of mental health, learning disabilities, and substance abuse. As part of the national Transforming Community Services initiative, we joined with Leicester City, Leicestershire County, and Rutland Community Health Services in April 2011. This has provided us with excellent opportunity to link mental health and physical health treatment pathways in order to improve the health and well-being of the individuals and communities of Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland.
The Trust serves a million people in Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland, has a budget in excess of £250 million, and employs over 5,500 individuals in a range of jobs. They work with family doctors (GPs), local hospitals, social services and other local authority departments such as housing, education, voluntary organisations and local community groups.
There are 12 wards spread over eight hospitals in Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland. Ten of these wards provide Sub Acute, Complex Rehabilitation, and End-of-Life Care to patients transferred from major hospitals such as the University Hospitals of Leicester, or patients can be admitted from home via their GP.
