Who We Are and What We Do

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) provides a range of health and wellbeing services mainly for people living in the city of Leicester and the neighbouring counties of Leicestershire and Rutland. Our Trust serves a population of one million people, has a budget in excess of £250 million and employs almost 5,500 staff.

We provide care and support through three divisions which focus on

  • Adult mental health and adult learning disability services
  • Families, young people and children's services
  • Community health services
We are working actively to integrate services so that patients and service users have quicker and easier access to a broad range of care.

Our work is led by a Trust Board, which is a group of Executive and Non Executive Directors.
