Where can I work?

We provide a range of high quality specialist mental health and learning disability services for the people of Devon, the wider South West region and nationally.

We are passionate about promoting good mental health and wellbeing. Our mission is to become a centre of excellence and expertise in the field of mental health and learning disability by 2021. We strive to use the expertise and resources within our organisation, and through our partnerships, to deliver high quality services that are safe and focused on people’s recovery.

Our passion and commitment to achieve this shapes our vision, mission and strategy. Our staff are pivotal in everything we do and we are committed to involving them fully in the development of the Trust and our services.

Across Devon, our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support people’s independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible having worked with them on a safe discharge home.

In any 24 hours our health and social care community teams visit around 450 patients in their own homes to help them rehabilitate after illness or injury. At any one time, they are overseeing around 8,850 people’s care.

Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust is an integrated organisation providing acute health care services from Torbay Hospital, community health services and adult social care.

The Trust runs Torbay Hospital as well as five community hospitals, stretching from Dawlish to Brixham. We also provide health and social care to the local population.

We have around 500,000 face-to-face contacts with patients in their homes and communities each year and see over 78,000 people in our A&E department annually. We serve a resident population of approximately 286,000 people, plus about 100,000 visitors at any one time during the summer holiday season.

The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust employs around 8,000 staff and serves a core population of more than 460,000 people in Exeter, East Devon and Mid-Devon. In partnership with Exeter University we carry out cutting edge research into new treatments and improved understanding of disease.

We admit more than 120,000 patients and hold 450,000 outpatient clinics every year, spending nearly £500 million a year on delivering high-quality acute- and community-based healthcare across more than a dozen sites in Exeter and eastern Devon.

Livewell Southwest is a recognised provider of integrated health and social care services operating across South Hams, West Devon and Plymouth, with additional responsibilities for delivering specialist services to people living in certain parts of Cornwall and Devon. Integrating health and social care means that we can deliver care for people in new ways which are more efficient, with professionals who would have previously worked in individual teams now working together. This way of working helps us to deliver the right care to people, in the right place, at the right time.

We were founded in 2011 as a pioneering, independent community interest company. This means we are a not-for-profit organisation which re-invests all revenue back into the services we provide, and the communities we serve. While we are not a formal part of the NHS, we work alongside colleagues from local NHS hospitals and services to deliver expert care to a range of communities.
