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.

ELFT has been named one of the HSJ Top 10 best places to work in healthcare, HSJ Provider Trust of the Year and graded as Outstanding by our regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in 2016. We believe that staff who feel valued by the Trust and are truly engaged in the organisation deliver better outcomes for our patients.

We have set ourselves the mission of providing the highest quality mental health and community care in England, and have embarked on an ambitious Quality Improvement Programme to transform the culture of the Trust to one of continuous improvement, delivered through participation of all staff and with service users, carers and families at the heart of our efforts to improve.

Newham's Consultant-led Inpatient Mental Health Triage Ward opened in 2013 and has played a pivotal role in the Newham directorate's successful management of inpatient bed occupancy over the past 4 years. The ward is predicated on prompt and robust consultant-led multidisciplinary assessment and treatment-planning. All admitted patients access a senior review within 24 hours of admission in order that appropriate treatment is commenced early and in the most appropriate environment. The clinical team works closely with local drug and alcohol services and all elements of the local crisis care pathway. The successful applicant will join an innovative, skilled and energetic team.
Newham hosts a WHO Collaborating Centre (the only one specifically for Mental Health Service Development in the world) and the successful applicant will have opportunities for academic links with the Centre and its large research group in social psychiatry. He/she will also be enrolled on the Trusts highly regarded Improvement Science in Action training and will be encouraged to contribute to our unique Quality Improvement programme.
