About the Trust

Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is the leading provider of mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages in Surrey and North-East Hampshire, delivering high-quality care across 140 services and employ over 2,500 staff, serving a population of 1.3 million. Their services are provided in a range of community settings, hospitals, and residential homes.


The Trust is based in a beautiful and vibrant part of England, offering excellent schools, music and food venues and family friendly communities and activities. The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is on our doorstep and ideal for walking and cycling while London is still less than an hour away!


The Trust value equality and inclusion, and believe that staff should reflect the diversity of the populations we serve. They have a BME Network, an LGBT+ Network and a Disability and Wellness Network. They have an active reverse mentoring scheme – a space where senior staff are mentored by one of the BAME staff members – to explore areas of good practice and generate ideas and priorities for improving the inclusive culture within the Trust.

Service Overview

The Working Age Adult Division includes ten community mental health recovery teams, in-patient wards on two hospital sites in Guildford and Chertsey and primary care mental health services.

The Trust are one of only twelve early implementer sites across the UK that is introducing new models of innovative community mental health care that will significantly improve access to timely, evidence-based, and best practice mental health interventions for people closer to home.

They will begin work on their second new hospital this year, in Chertsey, as part of their New Hospitals Programme delivering care in state-of-the-art purpose-built facilities. Farnham Road in Hospital was the first hospital to be redeveloped and they will be building a third hospital in East Surrey.

The Trust pride themselves on providing high quality care and treatment to people who are experiencing mental health difficulties and offering support to carers. They understand that positive mental health is a product of people reaching their potential across broad areas of their lives, from work and education to relationships and physical well-being. Working in close partnership with local GP’s, Social Care, voluntary sector organisations, community groups and other health care providers they aim to ensure they meet the needs of the diverse communities by providing individualised, person-centred care.

Staff wellbeing

The well-being of staff is as important to The Trust as the care they provide to the people who use their services. They have a well-established ‘Here for You’ service that provides a range of help to support the wellbeing of staff, including a range of therapies and also offer free physical health checks. They provide flexible/agile working to help meet work/life balance.

They take a compassionate and collaborative approach to leadership in Surrey and Borders Partnership Trust and ensure staff at all levels are encouraged to contribute ideas to support the development and delivery of their services.
