In October 2007 Lincolnshire Partnership became the first NHS mental health organisation to become a foundation trust in the East Midlands. We operate from 56 sites providing services in Lincolnshire & North East Lincolnshire, employing around 2000 staff.
In a recent CQC inspection we were awarded: Overall rating GOOD
Our work is increasingly community based and we provide people with a wide variety of mental health, learning disability and social care services in close partnership with colleagues in local councils, GPs, charitable and voluntary organisations, as well as regularly working with services users, carers and their representatives.
Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) provides a range of mental health services for the population of Lincolnshire across a mixed rural and urban population of around 900,000 people; including community mental health, inpatient and urgent care, rehabilitation, talking and specialist psychological therapies, learning disabilities support, and some social care for adults, children, families and older people.
The Trust is innovative, caring and ambitious and is committed to seeking new and more effective ways to promote recovery and quality of life through mental health, social care and specialist community services provided by itself and in collaboration with its partners. The Trust has a strong track record of performance across both finances and quality measures and is well placed to meet the demands of the future. In January 2019, we received a ‘Good’ rating across all domains of the CQC inspection and we were rated as ‘Outstanding’ for “Well-Led”.
Following a recent national announcement that Lincolnshire is to be one of only 12 areas across the Country that will benefit from significant additional funding for Community Mental Health as part of the implementation of the NHS Long Term Plan, we are excited to develop new services for people who have specific or additional needs, including complex mental health difficulties associated with a diagnosis of ‘Personality Disorder’ and mental health rehabilitation.
As part of this new and exciting transformation programme we are looking to appoint a Clinical Lead/Service Manager who has an interest in the treatment and management of patients with personality disorders and complex needs. The successful candidate will have a pivotal role in shaping this change and will drive forward the newly developed integrated care pathway model to transform the community services of Lincolnshire and surrounding areas.
In return, we can offer exceptional education, training and professional development opportunities as well as a wide range of staff benefits to support a healthy work-life balance.
As a Trust we strive to employ a diverse workforce and applicants must also be able to demonstrate the Trust’s values and behaviours. Having a diverse leadership team is crucial to this aim and we actively encourage applications from under-represented groups and those who have had personal experience of mental health conditions to apply for this role.
