HPFT is on a journey from ‘Good’ to ‘Great’ and is fully committed to providing excellent health and social care for people with mental ill health, physical ill health and those with learning disabilities. We do this by providing services which make a positive difference to the lives of patients, service users and their carers, underpinned by the principles of choice, independence and equality.
We provide integrated health and social care across community and inpatient settings treating and caring for people across Hertfordshire, Norfolk and North Essex.
Our partnership arrangements with the local authority (Hertfordshire County Council) provide an excellent opportunity to develop a recovery orientated approach based on a holistic assessment of both health and social care needs. We also aim to play a full part in the local health and social care economies that we serve by promoting greater integration between mental and physical health and social care.
We are also a University trust, with close links to the University of Hertfordshire, providing excellent learning and development opportunities for our staff, as well as strengthening clinical research.
