About Us

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust provides high quality integrated mental health, learning disability and community health services.

The Trust was created in 2002 to provide mental health, learning disability and substance misuse services. In April 2011 we merged with Leicester City and Leicestershire County and Rutland Community Health Services as a result of the national Transforming Community Services agenda. This has given us great opportunities to join up mental health and physical health care pathways to advance health and wellbeing for the people and communities of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

We serve a population of one million people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, have a budget in excess of £250 million and employ over 5,000 staff in a wide variety of roles.

We work with family doctors (GPs), local hospitals, social services and other local authority departments such as housing and education. We also work with voluntary organisations and local community groups.

Quality is at the heart of everything we do. We have a vision and have a set of values and strategic objectives which aim to ensure that anyone we care for is treated to high standards and with respect.

Our services are organised into four operational divisions: adult mental health services; adult learning disability services; families, young people and children's services; and community health services. A detailed A to Z of our services can be found by clicking this link.

Adult Learning Disability Services
For adults with a learning disability we provide inpatient treatment as well as short-break residential services and support from community-based teams. We also offer specialist advice and support to others involved in caring for someone with a learning disability.

Families, Young People and Children's Services
Families, young people and children's services includes mental health services for children and young people, health visiting, school nursing, paediatric medicine, health promotion, sexual health and nutrition services. We deliver services in homes, community and neighbourhood centres, children's centres, health centres, hospitals, inpatient units, schools and nurseries.

Community Health Services
The community health services division includes adult nursing and therapy services and mental health services for older people. We deliver services in inpatient wards, and through many community teams who work in clinics, day services and people's own homes.

Adult Mental Health Services
Our adult mental health services provide both inpatient and community-based services. We offer general psychiatric care for adults of all ages at a number of inpatient units and also have a specialist unit for psychiatric intensive care. We deliver care in a low secure environment at the Herschel Prins Centre and provide healthcare services to the Glen Parva Young Offenders Institute. We also have specialist teams working in the community offering a range of services such as crisis intervention, psychotherapy, personality disorder therapy and care for people with Huntington's disease.

We are also a teaching trust, which means we conduct research and provide training and education for medical, psychology, nursing and therapy students.

Our statement of purpose, as registered with the Care Quality Commission sets out the main services provided and premises from which we operate.
