About the Trust
Who we are and what we do
Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust strives to improve the health and wellbeing of all Cumbrians by delivering high quality healthcare services.
Working closely with GPs, we deliver community based healthcare. For more information about our services please click here.
Closer to Home
Our community services are supported by hospital beds and rehabilitation services from our nine community hospitals, community beds in acute hospitals, and mental health and learning disability inpatient units. We want the people who use our services to remain independent and in control. We want you to have access to the right treatment, in the right place at the right time, closer to home.
A Foundation Trust
We have been a Foundation Trust since 2007. This allows us more freedom to decide how we deliver services locally, and makes us accountable to our community through our members and governors who help shape local, responsive services. We currently have over 14,000 members and this number will increase in 2013. We are an ambitious Trust and constantly seek new business opportunities to make us stronger and even more sustainable.
We employ approximately 4000 staff and serve a population of almost half a million across the six districts in Cumbria. We are committed to supporting our staff and have developed our own ‘Learning Network' to develop their skills- ensuring quality, evidence based care for the people of Cumbria.
Here for You
We are committed to improving patient safety, patient experience and getting the best possible outcomes for the people who use our services. You are at the centre of everything we do.
