Welcome to South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Our Trust provides mental health, learning disability and specialist children’s services across South Staffordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin. We also provide services on a wider regional or national basis, including perinatal, eating disorder and forensic services. The Trust’s Inclusions service provides psychological and drug and alcohol services and has contracts across the country. We are now also providers of genitourinary medicine services in South Staffordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT) and Shropshire Mind are looking for carers and people with lived experience of mental health difficulties to take part in focus groups exploring the particular problems faced in rural areas.
The REAPS (Rural Experiences and Psychiatric Services) study is looking at the experiences of rurally based service users with severe and enduring mental health conditions, their carers and clinicians.
A brand new community mental health and learning disabilities hub was opened in Telford last week by South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
Fuller House at Hall Court in Telford is the new hub for Primary Care Wellbeing, Community Mental Health and Learning Disabilities services covering Telford & Wrekin and East Shropshire. The building offers consulting rooms and clinic spaces as well as administrative offices and will enable staff to offer care in comfortable, appropriate surroundings as well as providing opportunities for physical health assessments.
Songs for You offers fun filled singing sessions to people living well with dementia, their carers or loved ones and other older adults.
The sessions are bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative and are calling on local people to support their cause.
People using mental health services in Shropshire are invited to join a creative arts project at Severn Fields Health Village.
Artists from the Participate Gallery in Shrewsbury will support participants to design and create a large, aerial structure which will enhance the waiting area, providing additional privacy and creating a welcoming environment at the centre. A range of techniques will be explored, including the possibility of working with a poet to create a body of words / verse / poetry that can be inscribed on the sculpture to inspire those people waiting for appointments.
People using mental health services in Telford are being encouraged to come forward to join a photography project which will create artwork for a new mental health hub at Hall Court in the town.
Artist Jamila Thomas will be working with service users and hopefully some staff to capture images around Telford. These will be used to enhance the environment for people attending appointments at the new centre which was recently opened by South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT).
