Adult Mental Health and Adult Learning Disability Services

Our services work to deliver high quality care for adults with acute and enduring mental health conditions and complex learning difficulties, across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Our services range from acute inpatient care, acute assessment and home treatment, day care, psychological therapies, community-based mental health care and assertive outreach. We have innovative partnerships with the police, EMAS and UHL for those experiencing mental health crisis, as well as a crisis support service provided by Turning Point. We also have locality-based learning disability teams, short break homes, specialist inpatient care, autism and outreach services. Our learning disability teams also offer specialist advice and support to others involved in caring for someone with a learning disability.

As a teaching trust, we are committed to conducting research and provide training and education for medical, psychology, and nursing and therapy students.

We offer a wide range of posts with these services, for established practitioners such as psychiatrists, consultants, mental health nurses, therapists, as well as healthcare support workers. We also have an increasing number of roles for those looking to grow their career working in mental health such as trainee nurse associates and clinical apprenticeships.
