North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust was established in 1994 and provides mental health and learning disability care to people predominantly living in the city of Stoke-on-Trent and in North Staffordshire.
The Trust is one of the main providers of mental health, social care and learning disability services in the West Midlands. We currently work from both hospital and community-based premises, operating from approximately 30 sites to approximately 464,000 people of all ages and diverse backgrounds in Stoke-on-Trent and across North Staffordshire. Our main site is Harplands Hospital, which opened in 2001 and provides the setting for most of our inpatient units.
We were delighted to have all of our services rated this year by the CQC as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ - making us the best rated mental health trust across the whole of the Midlands and East of England and third highest in the whole country - only 1 of 3 with every service rated at least Good and at least two Outstanding.
