About us

Our core purpose is to work with people and lead communities in improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing for a better life through delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.

Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is the leading NHS provider of mental health, well-being and drug and alcohol services across Surrey and north east Hampshire. It is also the main provider of learning and neurodevelopmental disability services. 

We support people of all ages, delivering high-quality care across our 97 services, all of which are registered with the Care Quality Commission. Individual treatment and support, which helps people work towards recovery, is at the heart of everything we do.

To help us achieve this we employ 2,926 whole-time equivalent staff serving a population of more than 1.4 million. Our services are provided in community settings, hospitals and residential homes with an emphasis on providing local treatment and support close to people's homes wherever possible. We see more than 63,000 different individuals each year and manage 456,359 appointments.

We actively seek to engage people who use our services and our communities in improving the mental well-being of the local population. As a Foundation Trust, we have nearly 7,000 public members.

We work closely with other NHS and voluntary sector organisations who provide services and support people who use our services, their carers and families.

The Trust was formed on 1 April 2005 following the merger of Surrey Hampshire Borders NHS Trust, Surrey Oaklands NHS Trust and North West Surrey Partnership NHS Trust. We achieved Foundation Trust status on 1 May 2008.
