Mental Health Services

NHS Shropshire CCG commissions Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT), previously named South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT), to provide mental health services in the county.

The trust also provides learning disability services in Shropshire.

Facilities include the Redwoods Centre in Shrewsbury which opened in 2012.

Redwoods provides 80 adult mental health beds for Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and 23 low secure beds for the West Midlands.

Children's Mental Health

This is the Children and Young Peoples Local Transformation Plan for Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. It reflects the work and planning that is still underway across the commissioning and provider partnership. Given the number of changes that are being made to the services we have committed to update this document more frequently in the next year, on a quarterly basis.
