South London and Maudsley is a complex and busy mental health trust serving diverse and vibrant local communities. We provide the widest range of NHS mental health services in the UK. We also provide substance misuse services for people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. The Trust was recently rated overall ‘good’ by the Care Quality Commission.
We are an organisation fuelled by people and their passion for mental health. Our vision is to improve the lives of the people and communities we service and to promote mental health and wellbeing for all.
The Board’s continued focus is to lead and support the trust’s 4,600 staff to deliver this vision and provide excellent care with pride and compassion. We believe that the wellbeing and happiness of our workforce is the key to creating a caring environment.
Our organisational structure includes Clinical Academic Groups, designed to make the best use of our strengths and enhance outcome and quality by bringing together benefits from research, education and training, specialist service expertise and local service provision.
We work closely with our academic partner and with industry to deliver world class research. We are the only mental health trust in the UK to have our own NIHR Biomedical Research Centre and we are part of one of England’s six Academic Health Science Centres, King’s Health Partners.
In recent years the trust has appointed a new Chair and Chief Executive and several new board members. We have reviewed and revised our governance structures and strengthened key relationships within our local health economies and communities.
We are now looking to recruit three Non-Executive Directors to complete the Board membership and complement the strengths and expertise of the existing leadership team.We look forward to hearing from you, and to answering any questions you may have.
