Who we are
There is no doubt that it is a challenging time for the NHS, but here at Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMW), you can be assured that you are in good hands.
A report from the Manchester Business School monitored our performance across the perspective of our service users, our staff and from a business and financial performance view. We scored so highly in these areas that we finished in the top nine trusts included in the study.
According to Monitor - regulator for Foundation Trusts - we have the lowest grade of risk to continuity of services as well as being marked with no evident concerns against our governance.
So whether you are being cared for by us, want to come and work for us, or just want to know that your local mental health trust is performing well, you can be assured that you will be soaring with a high-flyer!
