Who are we?

North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust is a leading provider of mental health, social care, learning disability and substance misuse services in the West Midlands

We are on an ambitious journey to deliver our vision to be outstanding – in all we do and how we do it.

In March 2019, we were delighted and proud to announce that the Care Quality Commission had awarded the Trust an overall “Outstanding” rating – the highest overall rating they can award.

The news meant that Combined Healthcare is 1 of only 2 specialist mental health Trusts in England with an overall ‘Outstanding’ rating.

The CQC rated Combined Healthcare as Outstanding in Caring and Responsive domains. It was rated Good in Safe, Effective and Well-led domains. 

Everyone who works for and with Combined Healthcare work tirelessly to provide the best possible care. They should be really proud of the CQC rating which recognises the really excellent compassionate and responsive way we support service users and carers day-in and day-out. 

We provide services to people with a wide range of mental health and learning disability needs. Sometimes our service users need to spend time in hospital, but much more often we are able to provide care in community settings and in people’s own homes.

We also provide specialist mental health services such as child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), substance misuse services and psychological therapies, plus a range of clinical and non-clinical services to support University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM).

The Trust has a range of formal and informal mechanisms in place to facilitate effective working with key partners across the local economy. These include participation in partnership boards which bring together health, social care, independent and voluntary sector organisations in the City of Stoke on Trent and the County of Staffordshire.
