Our mental health services provide care and treatment for people with mild to moderate conditions such as depression, anxiety or dementia, or more serious mental health illnesses such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder and more.
Our community services are wide-ranging and support people to stay out of hospital from birth right through to the end of their life, including district nursing, health visiting, audiology, podiatry, health improvement and intermediate care.
We also work closely with a range of partners including commissioners, NHS Trusts, the private sector, local councils and voluntary organisations to deliver innovative and integrated care to our communities.
Services are located across multiple sites, including health centres, community clinics, GP practices and hospitals.
