Acute and urgent care

The Acute and Urgent Care service line helps patients to be supported through crises.

This might be in one of our inpatient wards, but is more likely to be in one of our community services which have been designed to help patients to build resilience, support each other and develop new ways of managing crises within a wider recovery-based model, without resorting to traditional emergency services such as A&E and inpatient wards.

South London Mental Health and Community Partnership (SLP)

The 'South London Mental Health and Community Partnership' is a new and innovative collaboration between three leading mental health trusts.

Mental illness is the single largest cause of disability in the UK and each year about one in four people suffer from a mental health problem. The cost to the economy is estimated to be around £100 billion annually and with physical and mental health closely linked , people with severe and prolonged mental illness die on average 15 to 20 years earlier than other people.

The NHS Five Year Forward View (October 2014), recognised that there is no one-size fits all and set out the challenge for leading NHS trusts to respond to the needs of the community by working together to deliver a better NHS for patients.

As a result Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and South West London and St. George’s Mental Health NHS Trust are working together to spearhead a better mental health service across south London. This partnership is called the South London Mental Health and Community Partnership.

The partnership is the first of its kind in London and brings together the clinical expertise of thousands of NHS staff to help identify areas of best practice that will be rolled out consistently across south London in order to deliver a shared vision to improve patient care, the foundation stone of this partnership.

The three chief executives are dedicated to leaing high quality changes across South London so that patients continue to receive high quality care for generations to come as a result of this partnership. They believe that this pro-active approach will no doubt become the blueprint for sustainable mental health services across the country, ensuring patients continue to receive high quality care for generations to come. By delivering a smarter, and more joined up way of working, quality can be increased and costs driven down whilst protecting service.

Forensic psychiatry

Our forensic psychiatry specialty training posts are part of a wider training programme.

The South London Forensic Psychiatry Training Programme is a three year scheme leading to an award of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in Forensic Psychiatry. Training posts are based at four Trusts that run major forensic services, and two world-class academic institutions:

South East Training programme:  Director Dr Rachel Daly

South West (St George's): Training programme director Dr Seán Whyte

Broadmoor Hospital: Allocator Dr Fin Larkin

West London Mental Health NHS Trust, hosts posts from both parts of the South London scheme

Trainees will be based in either the South-East or the St George's parts of the scheme, but during the three years will spend up to 12 months in posts on the other part of the scheme, plus 3-12 months (typically 6) at Broadmoor Hospital.

At least one post will be for 12 months. Generally a trainee's initial placement will be in medium security. Other posts may be for 6 or 12 months' depending on training needs and individual preferences. The changeover to different posts is in August and February. Trainees are an integral part of the services and teams to which they are attached.

Trainees remain under the tutelage of the same training programme director (TPD) throughout the rotation.

Training plans are discussed at the initial interview with the TPD at the beginning of the training programme and thereafter at regular intervals.
