We work alongside schools, local hospitals, GP practices, social services and other local authority departments such as housing and education, as well as working with voluntary organisations and local community groups, in order to achieve our goals and to ensure that anyone we care for is treated to the highest possible standard.
We provide care and support through three divisions which focus on:
Adult Mental Health Services
Our services work to deliver high quality care for adults with acute and enduring mental health conditions and complex learning difficulties, across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Services range from acute inpatient care, acute assessment and home treatment, day care, psychological therapies, community-based mental health care and assertive outreach, day care and prison healthcare. We are also a teaching trust, which means we conduct research and provide training and education for medical, psychology, nursing and therapy students.
Families, Young People and Children’s Services and Learning Disability Services
We provide universal and specialist support including child and adolescent mental health services, health visiting and school nursing, paediatric medicine, nutrition and dietetics services, eating disorder services, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. This is along with locality-based learning disability teams, short break homes, specialist inpatient care, autism and outreach services. Our learning disability teams also offer specialist advice and support to others involved in caring for someone with a learning disability.
Community Health Services
Community health services includes adult nursing and therapy services and mental health services for older people. We deliver services in inpatient wards, in clinics, and in patients’ own homes. Our services include general and stroke rehabilitation, end of life care, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, podiatry, falls prevention, and mental health services for older people.
