Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is the leading provider of health and social care services for people of all ages with mental ill-health and learning disabilities in Surrey and North East Hampshire.

They deliver high-quality care across their 140 services, all of which are registered with the Care Quality Commission. Individual treatment and support, which helps people work towards recovery, is at the heart of everything they do.

To help them achieve this they employ 2,800 staff serving a population of 1.3 million. Their services are provided in community settings, hospitals and residential homes with an emphasis on providing local treatment and support close to people’s homes wherever possible.

Core Purpose

Our core purpose is to work with people and lead communities in improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing for a better life through delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.

We are an innovative and award-winning Trust providing mental health, learning disability and drug and alcohol services at 39 sites across Surrey and North East Hampshire. We employ 2,300 staff delivering 140 services and are proud to be rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission. Our Trust has a strong focus on research and development, quality improvement and education.


Our Vision and Values were created as a result of a series of conversations which were held in 2005 to consider the ways in which we should be working. Participants in these conversations numbered in excess of 600 and included staff, people who use services, their carers and families, County Council social care staff, local voluntary groups, Primary Care Trusts, our regulators and independent and private providers of services.

The statements around these headings are quotes from the conversations where people described what they would like their experience of the Trust to be. The Trust Board and Executive Team are committed to ensuring that our Vision and Values guide how we work and how we make our decisions. We are actively using them to test how well we are performing and we will be using them increasingly as a basis for seeking the views of staff, people who use services and carers on how we are doing.
