ELFT (East London NHS Foundation Trust) is making a positive difference to thousands of people’s lives, providing support so that they can fulfil their potential and enjoy healthy lives.

Stockwood, CMHT Luton


Mental Health and Wellbeing Services in Luton and Bedfordshire are part of East London NHS Foundation Trust. They have undergone transformative changes over the past four years with redesigned admission and crisis care pathways, newly developed recovery-focused community mental health teams and expanded primary mental healthcare and liaison services. Strong clinical leadership and an embedded culture of continuous improvement and meaningful patient involvement are helping us to improve care outcomes and staff satisfaction and helping us in our strategy to improving population health.


This is an exciting opportunity to work in an established CMHT, which benefitted from having had a substantive consultant in post for some time. Charter House has 4 CMHTs based on site and there is ample opportunity to meet colleagues and team members.
