Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust is inviting service users, carers and staff to join a Trust choir.
The governors have been given a small grant by the Trust Executive to help service users. After discussion in the Membership group and agreement by the Governors Steering Committee one of the projects chosen is to fund a choir leader to start a Camden and Islington Choir open to all staff , service users and carers.
We would like to take this opportunity to ask you if you would be interested in joining a choir and if so any ideas you may have.
If we had enough enthusiasm we might give an inaugural performance at the annual members meeting on 6 October 2016.
We provide mental health and substance misuse services to people living in Camden and Islington, and a substance misuse and psychological therapies service to residents in Kingston.
We have two inpatient facilities, at Highgate Mental Health Centre and St Pancras Hospital, as well as community based services throughout the London boroughs of Camden and Islington. Our Trust is also a member of University College London Partners (UCLP), one of the world’s leading academic health science partnerships.
We provide services for adults of working age, adults with learning difficulties, and older people in the London area either in a community or inpatient setting.
Our income for 2015/16 was £138million and we have approximately 1,700 staff. Our staff work in multi-disciplinary teams providing a holistic approach to recovery. This means that we often work with partner agencies and the voluntary sector. Camden and Islington Mental Health and Social Care Trust was stablished in 2002. In March 2008 we became the first Care Trust to achieve Foundation Trust status and are licensed by NHS Improvement.
