We provide specialist mental health and learning disability services to the people of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire. We’re an innovative and forward-thinking organisation, with a real commitment to providing a high quality service. We were also the first trust in the country to be awarded an ‘outstanding’ rating for acute inpatient services, crisis services and psychiatric intensive care services.
We have a variety of opportunities available for experienced and newly qualified staff. If you are looking for a new role and want to learn more about working for ²gether, visit our dedicated recruitment website.
Carers and families provide a vital support network but are at greater risk of experiencing mental and physical health problems and emotional stress themselves due to the demands of being a carer. As well as providing care and treatment for the people who use our services, we are also here to support you.
Your views and suggestions are important. They help us to improve the services we provide. We would like you to tell us about your experiences so that we can continue to make life better for people who use our services and their families/carers.
