North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust provides mental health and learning disability services to people predominantly living in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. The Trust is one of the main providers of mental health, social care and learning disability services in the West Midlands. We work from both hospital and community settings, operating from approximately 30 sites serving a population of approximately 464,000 people of all ages and diverse backgrounds. Our main site is Harplands Hospital, which provides the setting for most of our inpatient units and newly built PICU. We provide a range of services to people with a range of mental health &learning disability needs.We also provide specialist mental health services i.e. child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), substance misuse services and psychological therapies. The Trust has a team of around 1,300 whole time equivalent staff and an annual financial turnover of £82.5m (2017/18). For the 20th consecutive year, we are extremely proud to confirm a financial surplus.
We are continuing our journey to provide more integrated services supporting a new alliance of health & care providers including mental health, primary care, community services, acute services, social care & voluntary sector. We are also proud to work closely with a number of agencies that support people with mental health problems.
In February 2018, we were delighted that the CQC rated every Combined Service as “Good” or “Outstanding”. The Trust’s overall rating is “Good”. This means that Combined Healthcare is the best rated mental health trust across the whole of the Midlands and East of England and third highest in the whole country – with two of our services rated as Outstanding . We look to involve our service users in everything we do, from providing feedback about the services we provide, to helping shape our priorities, to helping us find the right people to work for and with us.
