Medical workforce - Why LPFT should be your next employer

Print Friendly and PDF

As a high performing and financially sound organisation, we are proud to work in partnership with our staff, patients, carers, governors, commissioners and public to deliver excellent mental health and learning disability services for the people of Lincolnshire.

We are particularly proud of the achievements of our staff colleagues with this work being recognised nationally, regionally and locally with a number of awards and accreditations. Our services are also often used as examples of best practice by CQC and Health Education England East Midlands and feature several times in their good practice guide.

As we strive for clinical excellence, our commitment to developing our people is evidenced through our continuous learning, ongoing development and generous study leave provision. Our training for junior doctors continues to be rated top in the East Midlands in the General Medical Council trainee survey, and with the Lincolnshire Medical School opening its doors in 2019 we move closer to our ambition to achieve university status.

LPFT is a first-class host organisation for National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) studies and offers nationally recognised training. We are known for having a vibrant research culture that offers a wealth of opportunities to support staff colleagues with research aspirations and for building a career pathway.

We are on a continuous improvement journey, supporting staff to make the
improvements they want to make for their patients and carers on the front line. We are proud to report that 72% of our staff would recommend LPFT as a place to work (Staff Survey, 2019).

We care about our staff and consistently feature highly nationally on the Staff Survey and whilst pending 2020 results, in 2019 we were rated as the second highest scoring mental health and learning disability trust in the national staff survey, performing above the national average in nine of ten themes.

Pride, Compassion, Integrity, Valuing Everybody, Innovation and Collaboration
are the values and behaviours at the very heart of LPFT and we would welcome an
application from you if you recognise these values and believe that you can make a
difference and share in our ambitions.
