NHS Trust - Nottinghamshire Healthcare
Positive about mental health and learning disability


Nottinghamshire Healthcare is positive about providing integrated healthcare services, including mental health, learning disability and physical health services.

Over 8,800 dedicated staff provide these services in a variety of settings, ranging from the community through to acute wards, as well as secure settings. The Trust manages two medium secure units, Arnold Lodge in Leicester and Wathwood Hospital in Rotherham, and the high secure Rampton Hospital near Retford.  It also provides healthcare in 13 prisons across the East Midlands and Yorkshire.  

We aim to continually improve our services and our patient, service user and carer experience.  Our dedicated feedback website enables people to tell us what we are doing well and what we could do better and shows how we respond.  We continue to work to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and learning disability. In conjunction with primary care and Health Partnerships we will improve services for people across the County of Nottinghamshire.

We are committed to being recognised as the leading national integrated healthcare provider – personally valued, locally relevant and nationally important.

‘Happy’ is launched on World Mental Health Day
(10 October)

The Trust was very excited to launch ‘Happy’, an anti-stigma film to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing on World Mental Health Day.

The film focuses on what makes people happy, what people do to lift themselves if they are having a down day and generally what little things people do which helps them to look after their mental health and wellbeing.

To add a bit of fun to the film those involved all danced along to the Pharrell Williams ‘Happy’ song
