NHS England is currently supporting seven digitally advanced mental trusts, through funding and international partnership opportunities, to become Global Digital Exemplars over the next three and a half years.

These trusts are:

  • Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust
  • Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust
  • Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust
  • South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

How were trusts selected

Trusts who met the following criteria were invited to submit expressions of interest:

  • A Care Quality Commission score of Excellent or Good
  • NHS Improvement confirmation that the organisations are well placed to deliver the ambitions of the programme

  • Evidence of leading innovative health and care initiatives enabled by digital technology

Expressions of interests were assessed by a multidisciplinary international panel chaired by Professor Keith McNeil, Chief Clinical Information Officer for the NHS, and Professor Tim Kendall, National Clinical Director for Mental Health, NHS England.
