Nottinghamshire Healthcare provides integrated healthcare services, including mental health, intellectual disability and physical health with services provided into large parts of the East Midlands, South Yorkshire and Leicestershire as well as some services which have a national footprint.
Over 9,000 dedicated colleagues provide these services in a variety of settings, ranging from the community through to acute wards, as well as secure settings. The Trust manages two medium secure units, Arnold Lodge in Leicester and Wathwood Hospital in Rotherham, and the high secure Rampton Hospital near Retford. It also provides healthcare in prisons across the East Midlands. Our budget for 2021/22 was £580m.
Nottinghamshire Healthcare also has a commissioning function and is the lead provider in a number of collaboratives, including the East Midlands Provider Collaborative for Adult Secure Care (IMPACT). The Trust is developing an increasingly important role within the new Integrated Care System (ICS) frameworks, and colleagues across the Trust have played vital leading roles in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
Research is an important function for Nottinghamshire Healthcare, and the Institute of Mental Health is the Trust’s partnership with the University of Nottingham. This partnership aims to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illness and covers a wide range of topics, including dementia, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, multiple sclerosis. Nottinghamshire Healthcare is committed to a sustainable future and is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and environmental impact across all of its many services as part of the Trust’s Green Plan and the NHS Long Term Plan.
Vision, values and five year strategy
It’s important that as an organisation we plan for the future, including our role within the wider health and care system and beyond.
The Trust’s strategy document sets out the direction of the Trust for the next five years. It defines who we are, what our priorities are, the outcomes they will deliver and when they will be delivered. It will inform everything from significant service level decisions through to individual objectives for staff with a view to delivering improved outcomes for our patients and service users.
The strategy details the ways in which we will improve the delivery and quality of care, support our workforce and embed a culture of continuous improvement across the organisation.
We know that our staff come to work to ‘Make a Difference’, so our Vision for the next five years is to ‘make a difference to the communities we serve by delivering the highest quality physical and mental health care to our patients, and by tackling inequalities in outcomes, experience and access.”
To do this we all need to work together and to live and breathe our Trust values: Trust, Honesty, Respect, Compassion and Teamwork.

Our ambitions and vision can only be realised if our values are at the heart of everything that we do.
By living our values, which are Trust, Honesty, Respect, Compassion and Teamwork, we believe we can achieve our ambitions to make a difference and drive change and improvement for our patients, staff and local community. Our values underpin our personality and set out a level of expectation about the behaviours we want of our people and what they can expect in return.
All colleagues are expected to embrace and live these values. We want everyone to work together to create the right environment for people to engage, learn and thrive. Each team will have their own expectations of what the behaviours linked to these values should be, in the team’s 'Behaviours in Practice'.
Please see below as an example of our values and expected behaviours:
