You can find up to date information on Trust services as well as NHS advice and guidance and links to other national and local support resources.
We will soon be carrying out a survey to find out what service users think about their care. This is part of a national programme to improve quality of care and service users’ experience.
The South London Mental Health and Community Partnership, together with our partners including local authorities and community organisations, have launched a major listening campaign to support and protect people's mental health following Covid-19.
We continue to see patients at all our sites, as well as in their homes, and have a number of measures in place to ensure our sites are Covid secure, including the wearing of face masks and coverings, deep cleaning, one-way signage and cleaning stations.
We publish a wide range of material about the services we provide and the way we operate. We are continually adding to our range so check back for updates.
Our Trust works closely with local general practitioners. This page aims to keep GPs up-to-date with news and developments at our Trust, as well as provide information they may need for their patients.
Our Trust wants to make the referral process as simple as possible. To find out more about how you can refer patients to our services please look at the individual services profiled in our services page.
The services are arranged alphabetically and provide detailed referral information, a list of conditions treated, profiles of who the service is for and the latest contact details including location maps.
We accept referrals from qualified professionals, including GPs, Accident and Emergency, and the Police. A number of CAMHS services (such as Merton) use a single point of referral service.
Developing close relationships with our local GPs ensures patients receive the best care. Through working closely and strengthening communication we can provide the best care for our patients and ensure they receive the right treatment for them in the right place. We are committed to working with primary care providers to ensure all patients receive the care they need.
Alongside the information found on this website, we also run regular clinical educational events, send out a regular newsletter and actively encourage all health professionals to contact us for both queries and feedback on our services.
Please contact our primary care liaison team if you have any issues referring into our services or contacting specialists, or if you would like any other additional information.
We work closely with our patients, local GPs and commissioners to ensure our services are always adapting to the needs of the community.
To keep our primary care colleagues up-to-date with the latest developments in the Trust, we are now issuing a regular newsletter. To subscribe to it, please email us.
We are always interested to hear what you think of the newsletter content and how we can improve it going forward. Please do send us your comments and ideas by email.

The Trust has reviewed any agreements it has made with staff over the last five years and can confirm that no clauses have been included in compromise agreements since 2008, which would have prevented employees or former employees from raising legitimate concerns about patient safety.
The Trust supports staff and others who bring forward concerns about safety and quality in its bid to continuously improve the services it offers to patients,their carers and families.
The Trust also has a whistle blowing policy in place. Staff can also approach the Trust's Senior Independent Director (SID) (who is a non-executive member of the Board) if they have concerns.
Jean Daintith is a Non-Executive Director and our current SID. Jean is Chair of the Quality and Safety Assurance Committee, Member of the Audit Committee, Member of the Foundation Trust Steering Committee and Member of the Remuneration Committee. You can contact Jean by emailing Jean.Daintith@swlstg.nhs.uk.
Since 1st August 2016, all NHS organisations have been legally required to follow the Accessible Information Standard (AIS).
The standard aims to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are provided with information that they can easily read or understand and with support so they can communicate effectively with health and social care services.
In the spirit of the AIS, The Trust is committed towards meeting the information and communication support needs of disabled people, improving outcomes and experiences and providing safer and more personalised care and services.
