Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) provides high quality, safe and innovative care to our patients in the community, in their homes or in hospital.
We provide services for adults of working age, adults with learning difficulties, and older people in the London area. We currently deliver the majority of our care to residents in the London Boroughs of Camden and Islington. However, we also provide substance misuse and primary care mental health services to people living in Kingston.
Our Trust is also a member of University College London Partners (UCLP), one of the world’s leading academic health science partnerships.
In addition we have specialist programmes which provide help and treatment for:
- Veterans living in London
- Young people caught in the cycle of gang culture
- Perinatal mental health conditions
We are proud that our organisation is recognised internationally for the quality of its research and innovation. Over 40% of our consultants hold joint academic posts and are engaged in research across a wide range of mental health arenas. This research, often conducted with the help of our patients, ensures we are leaders in evidence based treatment and services, meaning we can provide some of the world's most up to date therapies to aid service user recovery.
We are a lead provider for educational placements in north London, and work in partnership with local universities to deliver both education and research projects as well as creating together the workforce of the future. This provides a great environment for our staff to innovate and deliver projects which transform patient care.
Our services are covered by three clinical divisions. This structure provides the benefits of a geographical based model enabling strong partnership working across health, social care, and the voluntary sector.
- Hospital (this division also hosts acute hospital liaison services and a Health Based Place of Safety)
- Camden Borough (this division also hosts cross-borough services for Ageing Mental Health and Perinatal mental health)Is
- Islington Borough (this division also hosts cross-borough mood disorder and substance misuse services)
These are supported by Corporate Services including Human Resources, Digital and Finance.
