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 £275 million and employ over 5,500 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.

Patients and families are 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. Find details of our Trust Board.

Our services are organised into three operational divisions: adult mental health and 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.
