Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides specialist mental health, substance misuse and learning disability services. We are an integral part of the health and social care network for the people of Sussex.
Sussex Partnership was established as an NHS Foundation Trust with teaching status in August 2008. The Trust is part of the NHS and is regulated by Monitor, the independent regulator of NHS Foundation Trusts.
Sussex Partnership is accountable through a Board of Directors, responsible for setting the strategic aims and objectives of the Trust and for monitoring performance, and a Council of Governors, which provides the link between the directors and local communities and keeps an eye on the performance of the Board.
The vision of Sussex Partnership is to realise the potential of everyone who uses our services and to help our staff to do a great job.
