Our core purpose is to work with people and lead communities in improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing for a better life; through delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.
We have signed the Armed Forces Covenant to show our support for members of the armed forces community, however they come into contact with the Trust - whether as service users, staff or carers.
The covenant focuses on helping members of the armed forces community to have the same access to government and commercial services as any other citizen.
Internally, we have established an Armed Forces Staff Network to ensure that the Trust is a great place to work if you are ex-forces or a reservist, with pro-active recruitment and support for people leaving the Forces. The network is also looking to make sure that the Trust provides great care to ex-forces personnel, in line with the NHS commitment to prioritise care for veterans. The staff network is attended by current reservists as well as clinicians and colleagues who have a special interest in supporting ex-Forces personnel.
We have been awarded the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Bronze Award in recognition of our commitment and support for defence personnel.
There are two main ways to access our services for support:
