Vanessa Ford, Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to invite our communities to come and hear about the excellent work our teams have been doing, and our exciting plans to ‘make life better together’ for the people we serve.
“We will show you the fantastic new facilities opening at Springfield Hospital and the developments planned for Barnes and Tolworth Hospitals, which are part of our commitment to transform mental health services while reducing inequalities, improving access, and breaking down stigma around mental health.
