Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust: Healthcare from the heart of your community

What we do

Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust provides specialist mental health and community health services to a population of around 900,000 within Berkshire.

We operate from more than 100 sites across the county including our community hospitals, Prospect Park Hospital, clinics and GP Practices. We also provide health care and therapy to people in their own homes.

We have 263 mental health inpatient beds and almost 200 community hospital beds in five locations and we employ more than 4,000 staff.

Working in partnership with patients and their families is really important to us as this helps us to provide the best care in the right place. We support people with long-term health problems to manage their own lives as much as we can, so they can stay at home and do not need to stay in hospital.

We organise our services around the six areas of Berkshire, to match the local authority boundaries. We call these Localities. Each Locality Director works together with a Clinical Director to make sure that our service management is informed by clinical knowledge and expertise.
