  3. Our Trust • Five London boroughs • Population of one million • Almost 22,000 service users • About 2,700 staff • Annual budget is £170 million

  4. Our priorities • To deliver safe, effective and responsive services: • Recovery and social inclusion • Quality of care • Services based on standards and evidence • To improve our care environment through our estates strategy including the Springfield regeneration programme • To maintain healthy finances • To become a foundation trust

  5. What is a foundation trust? • New type of NHS organisation • Remains part of the NHS • Run and accountable at local level • Regulated by Monitor • Inspected like other NHS organisations

  6. Why become a foundation trust? • The change of accountability has the potential to transform for the better the way we relate and respond to service users and carers.  It is a shift to more of a service culture, where people have a much greater say in the treatment and support they receive. • Having a large membership enables us to stay in touch with local communities - increasing knowledge and understanding of mental heath, reducing stigma and discrimination and building coalitions to press for positive change. • The breadth and range of interests in our Members' Council should lead to richer debate about our strategies and plans and to more rounded decisions.

  7. Why become a foundation trust? • The process of becoming an FT will test and further strengthen our management, business and governance capacity and capabilities to make sure we are fit for purpose and fit to care. • There are some limited additional financial flexibilities which will help us in an increasingly competitive healthcare market. • The vast majority of NHS services will soon be delivered by FTs, and this will be the organisational model that the public and other stakeholders will increasingly come to recognise and understand.
