We have been providing mental health, learning disability, substance misuse and specialist services in Sheffield since 2008. As a Foundation Trust, we are directly accountable to our members and the communities we serve through our elected Council of Governors.
Every year we provide care to more than 50,000 people, providing them with a wide range of mental health, learning disability, substance misuse and primary care services.
Some of our specialist services, including our gender identity clinic and autism service also provide support to people living outside of Sheffield. People living outside of the city account for about 6% of the people we support.
Our main commissioning partners are NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group and Sheffield City Council who commission around 68% of our services.
Our services are delivered from around 40 sites across Sheffield, including working from partner organisations’ premises, such as our Liaison Psychiatry team who are based at the Northern General Hospital.
We deliver integrated health and social care services for adults of a working age alongside Sheffield City Council. We also work closely with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) within Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust to ensure care is carefully coordinated as young people move into adulthood.
We are partners in innovative service development such as the Sheffield Primary and Community Mental Health Transformation Programme. The programme is one of 12 in the country selected by NHS England and sees us working in partnership with Primary Care Networks in Sheffield and South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System.
