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. 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 Health and Care Partnership

We are a member of Sheffield’s Health and Care Partnership (HCP), which brings together seven partners in the city to focus on issues that are better 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 Sheffield HCP's vision is for our health and care services to be joined up, and seamless; to reduce and remove health inequalities in a way that involves people, their experiences and our communities at the centre.

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.

Horizon (Provider collaborative for Adult Secure Care)

We are a provider partner in Horizon, the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw (SYB) Provider Collaborative for Adult Secure Care.

NHS-led Provider Collaboratives are new regional partnerships of organisations that provide specialised mental health services.

These partnerships are being established across England as part of a national programme of work that sees the responsibility for the commissioning of specialised mental health services transfer from the NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I) Specialised Commissioning team to the new regional provider collaboratives. Horizon launched in May 2022, read more about it here.
