Devon Partnership NHS Trust pledge to the Equally Well Charter:
Devon Partnership NHS Trust provides specialist mental health services and services for people with a learning disability in Devon, and services for older people with dementia in Bristol. Whilst we have a CQC rating of ‘Good’ we recognise we’ve much to do to improve the general health of people using our services and to close the 20 year mortality gap experienced by people with mental illness and/or a learning disability.
We are proud to join Equally Well and look forward to sharing ideas and expertise. We are fortunate to have an active and growing contribution from people with lived experience and their carers and supporters as part of our Together programme. We have opened a GP-led health centre at Langdon Hospital in the heart of our secure services campus to ensure that the people in our care there have access to the same general health services as others in society. We have a dedicated team working on screening and prevention and our Board is fully committed to making a difference as part of our wider ambition to be a Centre of Excellence for the people we serve. We welcome visitors and critical friends who can help us ‘Close the Gap’.
