About Working for Devon Partnership NHS Trust

We provide a wide range of NHS services to people with mental health and learning disability needs - in Devon, the wider South West region and nationally.

Our frontline teams include psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, support workers and administrative staff. We are increasingly striving to recruit people who have personal experience of mental health and learning disability issues as peer support workers.

We support our staff who are members of, or who wish to join the Volunteer Reserve Forces and have a Bronze award from the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme, which acknowledges our commitment.

We have a budget of £250m a year and employ around 3,700 staff. During the course of a year we receive more than 66,000 referrals and make contact with around 36,000 people every month.

We are proud to have some wonderful volunteers that work for us. If you are interested in finding out more about voluntary work please email dpn-tr.DPTVolunteers@nhs.net.

We have been rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission.

“We have group supervision. We’ve got a multi-disciplinary team which includes occupational therapists, social workers, nurses and doctors, so it’s a really good dynamic team. We’re all very approachable and sociable and I think that’s what keeps so many people working in the community mental health teams in Devon for so long.”
