We have 239 beds across our 13 community hospitals and 143 beds within our 7 mental health inpatient wards as well as the care we provide in the community.

We have been awarded a range of accreditation in recognition of our positive employment practices, including Mindful Employer and the Disability Symbol - Positive about Disabled People and we are committed to embedding the principles of the NHS Constitution.
