About us

Southern Health provides community health, specialist mental health and learning disability services for people across the south of England. Covering Hampshire we are one of the largest providers of these types of service in the UK.

We employ around 6,000 staff who work from over 200 sites, including community hospitals, health centres, inpatient units and social care services.

Our service users and patients are at the centre of everything we do - being person centred is one of our Trust values. 


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.
