South London and Maudsley is one of the largest mental health trusts in the UK, offering the widest range of specialist mental health and substance misuse services across the country. Our aim is to be a leader in improving health and wellbeing - locally, nationally and globally. Our scope is unique because it is built on three major foundations: care and treatment, science and research, and training.
We established our Commercial Team in 2014. We have a broad portfolio including tendering, business case support, intellectual property, digital, advisory services and other commercial ventures. We engage in these commercial opportunities to help us invest in the resources and infrastructure that make our trust distinct.
We work with a wide range of UK partners from public, private and voluntary sectors to deliver high quality clinical services and education and training.
We have a long history of providing mental health expertise internationally:
British Armed Forces - Germany, Cyprus, Falkland Islands
Bermuda - forensic mental health training
Ukraine - child and adolescent mental health (CAMHS) assessments
Tunisia - trauma support
Sierra Leone - psychological support for Ebola workers
Australia - wellbeing training and parenting education
In 2015, the trust partnered with Macani Medical Centre and launched Maudsley Health in the United Arab Emirates. Maudsley Health provides CAMHS and adult outpatient clinics in Abu Dhabi.
In 2018 Maudsley Health was awarded a contract to support the Ministry of Health and Prevention to develop services in Al Almal Psychiatric Hospital in Dubai. Al Amal was awarded Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation in 2019, just one year after the contract started.
We are always interested in exploring international opportunities including consultancy, training and education, and providing clinical services.
