The South London Partnership is bringing great healthcare together
Since 2017, the South London Mental Health and Community Partnership (SLP) has worked tirelessly to bring together colleagues working for Oxleas, South London and Maudsley and South West London and St George’s - south London’s three main NHS mental health trusts.
With so much experience available and ground-breaking innovations being shared, the SLP has helped improve quality and deliver the best care consistently to many of the 3.6 million patients in south London.
Together the partnership has achieved many notable improvements, such as significantly reducing out of area placements (meaning that patients stay closer to home and family), introducing the Employee Passport, allowing nurses and other staff to move quickly and easily between trusts helping to fill roles in services that need their expertise, reducing nursing vacancy rates, developing nursing careers and increasing apprenticeship opportunities.
