About the Trust

West London NHS Trust is one the most diverse providers of NHS mental and physical health care in the UK.  We deliver services in community, inpatient, specialist and forensic (secure) settings, across 30 main sites.
We are a teaching Trust with a growing research portfolio, working with academic and industry partners and promoting patient and public involvement in research 

We care for more than 99,000 people every year, serving a local population of 800,000 in:
Hammersmith & Fulham
We provide services across 10 London boroughs, as well as national, specialist and forensic services.
Our priorities are:

  • Ensuring the best environment for safety, care and recovery
  • Supporting and caring people closer to home
  • Delivering integrated mental and physical care
  • Working with our partners to ensure co-ordinated care

We employ around 3300 staff, working with carers, service users and partners across the communities we serve.
As well as the above services, we also provide:

  • An intermediate care service in Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham
  • A healthy lifestyle programmes called One You Ealing

Where appropriate, we provide care for people whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act 1983 , either by detention in hospital or being on a community treatment or guardianship order.

Following a public consultation, the Trust changed its name to West London NHS Trust (from West London Mental Health NHS Trust) in September 2018.  This change reflects our strategy to build on our existing position as a major provider of mental health services to become a leading provider and partner in delivering integrated mental and physical healthcare in local services across West London and beyond, as well as our national services.

Where relevant, our previous name may appear in publications and documents.
