Who we are
We are a leading provider of mental health services across south west London and a beacon of excellence for many of our national mental health services.
We serve 1.1 million people across the London boroughs of Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth and employ more than 2,000 staff who provide care and treatment to about 20,000 people from south west London and beyond at any given moment.
We have a long history of innovation that has helped to redefine the mental health landscape in the UK. We have more than 100 clinical teams across the Trust, working to make sure that high quality patient centred care is our key priority.The emphasis of our services is on recovery which means helping people to get on with their lives and to focus on the things that are important to them.
Our Trust headquarters are in the impressive grounds of Springfield University Hospital in Tooting, with major inpatient services provided from Tolworth hospital in Kingston, and Queen Mary's hospital in Roehampton. We also operate in many other community locations in London and the south east.
We provide community and outpatient services in each of the boroughs we serve and provide many national services such as those for people with eating disorders and OCD as well as national deaf services.
Our staff are among some of the most advanced and experienced practitioners in their fields and we are proud of the positive impact our mental health services have for both patients and the wider community. We invest in research, innovation and training in mental health and are connected to a number of academic and research organisations.
Our clinical expertise has led us to develop and contribute to ground-breaking national policies. We also regularly receive visitors to transfer knowledge and share good practice. From community outreach to informing government policy, we are working with you and for you to provide the best in mental health care.
As a teaching trust, we also provide education, training and research in partnership with a number of universities as listed below.
