The Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust provides high quality integrated mental health, learning disability and community health services.The Trust was created in 2002 to provide mental health, learning disability and substance misuse services.
In April 2011 we merged with Leicester City and Leicestershire County and Rutland Community Health Services as a result of the national Transforming Community Services agenda.
This has given us great opportunities to join up mental health and physical health care pathways to advance health and wellbeing for the people and communities of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
We serve a population of one million people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, have a budget in excess of £250 million and employ over 5,000 staff in a wide variety of roles.
We work with family doctors (GPs), local hospitals, social services and other local authority departments such as housing and education. We also work with voluntary organisations and local community groups.
Quality is at the heart of everything we do. We have a vision and have a set of values and strategic objectives which aim to ensure that anyone we care for is treated to high standards and with respect.
Our services are organised into four operational divisions:
A detailed A to Z of our services includes podiatry, and weight loss programmes
Our District Nursing Teams provide nursing care, advice and support in community settings. Our teams provide follow-up care for patients recently discharged from hospital and longer term care for chronically ill patients; and our district nurses have the expertise and skills to treat and manage a wide range of conditions including Diabetes care. A newer service will integrate district nursing and intermediate care services to deliver more patient focused services.
Referrals to the district nursing service are accepted from GPs, hospitals, social services or in the case of new referrals, patients can contact the Single Point of Access Tel: 0116 295 8788
