About the Trust

We provide community health, specialist mental health and learning disability services for people across the south of England.

Sterne building at Trust Headquarters, Tatchbury Mount, Southampton

Covering Hampshire and parts of Oxfordshire we’re one of the largest providers of these types of service in the UK. 

We employ around 7,000 staff who work from over 200 sites, including community hospitals, health centres, inpatient units and social care services.

We might be large, but our service users and patients are still at the centre of everything we do. Being person centred is one of our Trust values. Our aim – to provide high quality, safe services, which improve the health, wellbeing and independence of our patients and service users.

Our services include:
  • Mental health services - we provide treatment and support to adults and older people experiencing mental illness. We also provide treatment to adults and young people, in secure and specialised settings.


  • Community services - our diverse range of community health services provide support and treatment to both adults and children. We deliver this care in community hospitals, health centres, GP surgeries and in our patients’ homes. We also provide a stop smoking service (Quit4Life). 

  • Learning disabilities services - our community learning disability teams work in partnership with local councils to provide assessment and support for adults with learning disabilities. We also provide specialist inpatient services.

Involving local people

Southern Health is also a Foundation Trust. This means that local people have greater involvement in the way we develop and run our services. It also gives us more flexibility in the way we can manage and invest our finances, allowing us to be more responsive to the needs of local communities.
