Are you interested in shaping the way we plan and deliver our mental health, learning disability and children's community health services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough?

One of the guiding principles of being a Foundation Trust is that we are accountable to local people. Our Governors consist of members of the public, past and present service users, carers and our staff.
