About us

What we do and how we work

We provide NHS care and treatment for people living in south east England. We are rated ‘good’ overall by the Care Quality Commission and ‘outstanding’ for caring.

Our mental health services provide care and treatment for people with conditions such as psychosis, depression, anxiety, dementia and personality disorder. Our specialist learning disability services provide community and inpatient care for people with complex health needs which can’t be met by other services. We have a number of services that provide very specialist care for people with complex health conditions and social care needs.


We provide care in people’s homes, in specialist clinics, hospitals, GP surgeries and prisons. Our services are aimed at children, young people and adults of all ages and many are provided in partnership.

Our Strategy Refresh

Our organisational strategy is about building for the future by having a clear plan about what we’re going to do to continue improving the experience of patients, families, carers and staff. It’s also about how we play our part in delivering the NHS Long Term Plan.

Our strategy is underpinned by our culture, values and behaviours. We want to shape a culture of inclusion, kindness, civility, learning, fairness and responsibility. This means using our values to guide the way we behave and work.
