How we fit into the NHS structure

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

Over 8,300 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 will continually improve our services and our patient, service user and carer experience, as well as reducing the stigma associated with mental illness and intellectual disability. In conjunction with primary care and we will improve services for people across the County of Nottinghamshire. The Trust is regulated by the Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of health and social care in England.

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

The Trust is committed to partnership working and our main stakeholders include:

  • Social care at both a City and County level as well as the Primary Care Trusts who buy our services.
  • The Trust works in partnership with the University of Nottingham.
  • The Trust also works in partnership with the Institute of Mental Health (one of the leading mental health institutes in the UK, offering leadership and innovation backed by world class expertise). http://www.institutemh.org.uk/

The Trust has achieved Foundation Trust standard. This gives us more freedom to respond better to the needs of the communities we serve as the views of local people will directly influence the decisions we make about our services.  Find out more about Foundation Trust status.
