About us

Our staff provide NHS services in south east London, Kent and in prisons in south west England. We specialise in community health, mental health and learning disabilities services.

Our 4,000 members of staff work from a range of locations, including clinics, schools and in people's homes.

We support our staff to develop, have excellent access to technology and have great opportunities for career progression and flexible working.

A great place to work

We will only deliver outstanding care to our patients if we take the best possible care of our staff. We want our people to be given opportunities to develop and thrive and to feel supported to give their best every day. We want every person in Oxleas to be treated kindly, fairly and with care. The wellbeing of colleagues is really important to us.

Building a fairer Oxleas

We are committed to equality for all our staff, including around race, sexual orientation, disability and gender identity. We take equality and diversity seriously and have active BAMEx, LGBTQ+, disability and mental health staff networks.

We have completed the second year of our Building a Fairer Oxleas programme, which is making positive changes to how it feels to work at Oxleas. The initial focus has been on making recruitment and career progression fairer and improving cultural understanding.

You can find out more information about this programme here.
