South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (SEPT)
With an annual turnover of approximately £300m South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (SEPT) is one of the most successful Foundation Trusts in the country providing integrated care including mental health, learning disability, social care and community health services from over 200 locations. We provide these services across Bedfordshire, Essex and Luton and employ approximately 6,100 people and serve a population of 1.8 million.
We became one of the country’s first mental health and learning disability NHS Foundation Trusts in May 2006. In 2010 SEPT set a new record of seven Healthcare 100 award category wins and took first place and the enviable accolade of Top NHS Healthcare Employer. SEPT was also voted Top Mental Health Trust in the Healthcare 100 survey that names the top 100 healthcare providers to work for in the UK.
SEPT was successful in its bid to acquire Community Health Services in Bedfordshire, South East Essex and West Essex. These services have now transferred to SEPT and are being integrated with our already existing mental health services in Bedfordshire and South East Essex. In West Essex we will work closely with commissioners and providers of health services to ensure a comprehensive integrated service for the population. Whenever and wherever possible we will provide local services for local people.
Nottinghamshire Healthcare is positive about providing integrated healthcare services, including mental health, learning disability and community health services.

We will continually improve our services and our patient, service user and carer experience and at the same time reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and learning disability.
