What’s special about our services?

Working in our mental health services, you will have opportunities to support people of all ages – starting with our award-winning perinatal service (an inpatient and community service) and our ‘outstanding’ CAMHS service.
Our adult and older adult service offers opportunities in:

  • Forensic care – at our low-secure unit, the Kedleston Unit
  • Psychiatric liaison – we have RAID teams based within both Derbyshire’s major accident and emergency departments
  • Acute inpatient care – our three inpatient campuses have gained international recognition for their promotion of the Safewards philosophy
  • Community mental health – our CMHTs are called ‘neighbourhood teams’, as we want each team to tailor its support to the needs of local people and collaborate with local organisations to promote resilience and recovery

Our organic mental health services are driven by the latest research, supported by our dementia and delirium research team at our Centre for Research & Development.
