About Us

We are a large provider of integrated mental health services in Barnet, Enfield and Haringey and also community health services in Enfield. We currently employ 2,900 staff and our annual income in 2016/17 is £189 million. We serve a population of just over a million.

We provide specialist mental health services to people living in the London boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey, and a range of more specialist mental health services to our core catchment area and beyond. Following the transfer of Enfield Community Services in 2011, we also provide the full range of child and adult community health services in Enfield and are increasingly integrating these with our mental health services to provide a range of more holistic services.

In 2014 we were awarded ‘University Affiliated’ by Middlesex University. The ‘University Affiliated’ status will facilitate stronger working relations, including the opportunity for experienced academics at Middlesex and experienced clinicians within the Trust to co-produce mental health education and research projects which meet the needs of local people. This agreement will enhance the current partnership between the two organisations, demonstrating a strong commitment to education, research and development.

The Trust’s patient care services are managed through a borough service line and specialist services structure.

To support patient care and facilitate effective performance management of the service directorates there are a range of corporate services. These include the Trust’s headquarters, Finance, Communications, HR, Organisational Development and Estates and Facilities.

 The Enablement Programme

In April 2015, Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust officially launched its Enablement Programme. Enablement is a strengths-based approach to care, founded on the principles of hope, resilience and independence, focusing on keeping patients well and preventing the need for higher-level care if at all possible.

The Enablement Programme aims to change the way staff work with people who use our services. People will be enabled to lead their recovery and, in doing so, will feel empowered and more confident to live the best life they possibly can – a life beyond a diagnosis.
