Bupa partners with NHS for mental health services

Bupa has announced it will partner with South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust to provide mental health services.

The two foundation trusts will provide clinical advice on mental health services to Bupa, to help it achieve its ambition to be “a world leader in mental healthcare” according to a statement.

The organisations involved have expressed hope that the partnership will help build understanding of the relationship between mental and physical health and how integrated services for mental health can be developed.

Dr Katrina Herren, medical director of Bupa Health Funding, said: “Through our work with the Tavistock & Portman and South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts we are looking forward to significantly improving and differentiating Bupa’s mental health services.”
