Would you like to be part of something Outstanding?

This is a hugely exciting time for the Trust having recently achieved an outstanding CQC rating and being one of just five mental health and learning disabilities NHS trusts in England to hold an outstanding rating.

Over the years the quality of our services and the achievements of our staff have been recognised nationally including the “Mental Health Trust of The Year Award” for 2020 at the Health Service Journal Awards.

In a recent NHS Staff Survey we achieved the best score for safety culture amongst mental health and learning disabilities trusts throughout the country. Our staff have also said that they would recommend HPFT as a place to work and as a place for their friends and family to receive care.

We are driven by our values. If you believe in Respect, Kindness and a Positive outlook then you'll be right at home.
