Nursing development programme


South London Partnership’s (SLP) three trusts — Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust — faced a challenge recruiting and retaining mental health nurses.

SLP needed the right skill-mix, flexibility and experience, particularly to grow its community services. In-depth research, including 35 consultation events, identified how they could improve nurses’ working lives, including: 

  • more face-to-face nursing time with patients
  • better training opportunities
  • clear career development paths
  • wider experiences, including within new community services.
