Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides physical and mental health, learning disability and adult social care services across Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Shropshire. We provide a vast range of community services for adults and children and specialised services such as rheumatology and rehabilitation, which are delivered in venues ranging from health centres, GP practices, community hospitals and people’s own homes.
The Trust also provides services on a wider regional or national basis including perinatal, eating disorder and forensic services. We deliver out of area sexual health services and our Inclusions service offers psychological and drug and alcohol services, in the community and in prisons, and has contracts across the country. We also provide genitourinary medicine services.
Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust deliver the Young People and Families Mental Health element of the partnership which includes a broad spectrum of community-based mental health services, ranging from early intervention through to specialist treatment and crisis resolution for young people with mental health problems.
To achieve this, there is a multi-disciplinary team of professionals trained to deliver a range of therapeutic support and work together as a team to understand and support the needs of individual children and families.
Whilst the core partnership is responsible for the key delivery of the service, we are working with multiple partners across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin to look at how we can make these partnerships as effective as possible to ensure that young people experience effective transition between agencies. These include Local Authorities responsible for delivering Social Care, Community Health Services such as School and District Nurses, Schools and staff working with young people in schools, GPs and other Primary Care Services and multiple community voluntary agencies already delivering help and support to young people and their families.
