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.
