About us

About us

At Oxleas, we offer a wide range of health and social care services to people living in south east London and parts of Kent. This includes community health care such as district nursing and health visiting, care for people with learning disabilities and mental health care such as psychiatry, nursing and therapies. Our multidisciplinary teams look after people of all ages and we work in partnership with other parts of the NHS, local councils and the voluntary sector.

Our 4,000 members of staff work in many different settings such as hospitals, clinics, prisons, children’s centres, schools and people’s homes. We manage hospital sites including Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup and Memorial Hospital in Woolwich as well as the Bracton Centre, our medium secure unit for people with mental health needs. Our prison health services cover Kent and South London including HMP Wandsworth.

We are organised in six clinical directorates:

  • Adult Learning Disabilities
  • Bexley Care
  • Bromley Mental Health Services
  • Children and Young People’s Services
  • Greenwich Adult Services
  • Forensic and Prison Services

At Oxleas, we have six core values which underpin how our staff and volunteers work together to care for our patients. These values are:

  • having a user focus
  • excellence
  • learning
  • being responsive
  • partnership 
  • safety. 

Our aim is to improve lives by providing the best quality health and social care for our patients and carers.
