Working in partnership with others is one of our core values at the Trust.
That means working alongside other organisations to share knowledge, experience and resources to provide the very best services we can. That might mean other NHS organisations, Sheffield City Council or other voluntary, charity or third sector organisations.
You can see examples of our partnership working across the city.
Our liaison service is based in the Accident and Emergency Department at the Northern General Hospital. We provide GP services at a number of practices across the city working in partnership with Primary Care Sheffield.
Our Community Enhancing Recovery Team have won national awards for our innovative LivingWell partnership with South Yorkshire Housing Association, and they've also been recognised for their work with South Yorkshire Police to train new police recruits in how mental health services work.
We also work closely with our commissioners, the organisations who fund us to provide services, NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group, Sheffield City Council and NHS England.
Sheffield Accountable Care Partnership
We are a member of Sheffield’s Accountable Care Partnership (ACP), which brings together seven partners in the city to focus on issues that can only be addressed collectively.
The partners are:
- Sheffield City Council
- NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group
- Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust
- Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
- Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust
- Primary Care Sheffield Ltd
- Voluntary Action Sheffield.
The aim of the partnership is to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone living in Sheffield.
Too many people in Sheffield still struggle with poor health and wellbeing, people from our most deprived communities will live on average 10 years less than those who live in wealthier areas.

South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System
Since October 2018 we've been part of the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (ICS), which is a partnership of all the NHS organisations working together to ensure that everyone living across the region has the best possible start in life, with support to be healthy and live well, for longer.
By working together we have the opportunity to plan, fund and deliver services that meet the needs of people living across the region now and in the future.
