Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH)

Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust Logo

The Trust was authorised as a Foundation Trust (Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS FT) on 1 February 2008. We acquired Manchester Mental Health and Social Care NHS Trust on 1 January 2017 and, in consultation with key stakeholders, changed our name to Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH) at that point to better reflect the extended geography served by the Trust. In April 2021, we acquired Wigan Borough mental health services.

The Trust is one of the largest specialist mental health providers in the country, providing inpatient and community-based mental health care for people living in Bolton, the city of Manchester, Salford, Trafford and Wigan, and a wide range of specialist mental health and addiction services across Greater Manchester, the north west of England and beyond.

We employ over 6,600 members of staff and deliver services from 109 locations with an annual income of £443million. In a 12-month period we expect to meet the needs of around 81,000 service users.

The business of GMMH is managed by a board of directors. The board work closely with the council of governors, who provide local accountability by representing the interests of members and partner organisations.

The Trust’s performance is scrutinised by the Foundation Trust regulator, NHS Improvement, and the Care Quality Commission.

We are an active partner within our local Integrated Care Systems, which are at varying stages of development. Salford ICO (Integrated Care Organisation) and Manchester LCO (Local Care Organisation) are the most advanced, with GMMH operating as a subcontractor to Salford Royal in Salford and agreement reached that a similar arrangement will be established in Manchester in Year 3 of the LCO (2020/21). Trafford’s Local Care Alliance (LCA) and Bolton’s Integrated Care Partnership are emerging and GMMH has executive-level seats on meetings established to take these developments forward. In all areas, the Trust’s approach is focused on building effective relationships, which will enable the delivery of joined up, higher quality care for local communities.
