Estates Modernisation

Mental health services in South West London are being transformed to provide more care closer to home.

This means more and more people will be supported in the community, and those who do need to be in hospital will not be admitted so often, or for so long

As a result we have an opportunity to look afresh at our mental health inpatient facilities. We have a once in a lifetime chance to create modern mental health inpatient facilities that will be the best in the country.

For more information about our plans please click here.  Complete our survey in order to help shape the official consultation process.

Care Quality Commission Report

In March, the CQC visited our Trust for a week long assessment as part of the pilot programme for the new inspection process.

The findings from the inspection have now been published (Thursday 12 June), with the report reflecting positively on the Trust, recognising the hard work and dedication of our staff and highlighting the progress we have made as an organisation.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who took the time to contact the CQC, either by email, phone, letter, or in person at a listening event or feedback session. Your experiences of the Trust gave the inspection team additional insight into the care we provide.

I am particularly proud of our caring and professional staff who have shown outstanding energy and commitment in making our services the best they can be for everyone who uses them, so I am grateful to the CQC for recognising this in the report.

The inspection was tough but very fair and gave us the extremely valuable opportunity to examine the services we provide and look at how we can make them better for patients, carers and our staff.

The report recognises the challenges we face, the improvements we have made and the strengths that we have as well as highlighting some areas for improvement. We know there is a great deal of work still to be done and we are ready to meet the challenges ahead.

Our Trust is on a journey towards excellence and we have ambitious and innovative plans to transform mental health services in South West London and rebuild our hospitals to provide the very best possible health and social care for our patients.
