Welcome to CPFT

We strive to improve the health and wellbeing of the people we care for, our staff and members, to support and empower them to lead a fulfilling life. Here at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) we are dedicated to providing high quality care with compassion. We deliver many of the NHS services that are provided outside of hospital and in the community such as physical, mental health and specialist services. We provide integrated physical and mental health services for adults and older people; specialist mental health and learning disability services; children and young people’s mental health services; children’s community services (Peterborough); social care; and ground-breaking research. To find out more about our services click here. CPFT is a smoke free Trust. Key documents including our Modern Slavery Act Statement, Fair Processing Notice and Gender Pay Gap  Report can be found here.

Coronavirus: Updated visitor information

25 March 2020: 
In line with national guidance to stay at home and to protect patients and staff, CPFT wards and inpatient units can now only allow visits in exceptional circumstances, until further notice.

Please contact the ward/service manager to agree any visiting arrangements for one carer/family member in advance, and keep in touch with your loved ones through phone and video calls. Thank you for your support and understanding at this challenging time.

  • Any visitors may be expected to wear protective clothing, and anyone who has not been given permission to visit will be asked to leave the site.

  • All visitors must comply with hand-washing and infection control instructions to protect patients and staff.

  • If you have Coronavirus symptoms, you must not enter any CPFT site/building. If staff members suspect you may have symptoms, you will be asked to leave.
