External inspections and benchmarking confirm that HPFT is a great place to work and receive services:

  • We are very proud to be one of just five mental health and learning disabilities NHS trusts across the country to receive an 'Outstanding' rating by the CQC.  This is the CQC's highest possible rating and followed visits made to many of Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust’s sites during February and March 2019. We are the only trust in the East of England to be rated as 'Outstanding'.  Your can read the full report here.
  • In the 2019 NHS Staff Survey, HPFT achieved the best score for safety culture amongst mental health and learning disabilities trusts throughout the country for the second year running. Staff have told us that they would recommend HPFT as a place to work and as a place for their friends and family to receive care. Results have also shown that staff feel their manager takes a positive interest in their health and wellbeing, they have flexible working patterns and that they feel valued.
