The Trust was authorised as a Foundation Trust (Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS FT) on 1 February 2008. We acquired Manchester Mental Health and Social Care NHS Trust on 1 January 2017 and, in consultation with key stakeholders, changed our name to Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH) at that point to better reflect the extended geography served by the Trust.
We are one of the largest specialist mental health providers in the country, supporting more than 65,000 service users across our local, specialist, substance misuse and prison populations. We employ over 6,400 staff and provide services from 109 locations across the North West of England, as well as working with people in their homes and local communities.
