Spectrum is a Community Interest Company (a form of social enterprise) and a not-for profit organisation. 

Any surpluses are ploughed back into initiatives and projects that improve public health and wellbeing. This enables us to work flexibly, innovatively and respond to the needs of local communities and deliver care that is personalised and effective. This also means that we remained focus on people (patients, service users, staff, partners and the community).

Our clinically-led and employee-led model means we give staff a real say in Spectrum’s future direction and influence in the way the organisation is run and managed.

Our culture is open, flexible and encourages staff involvement at all levels. The skills and expertise of our workforce are valued by us and valuable to the vulnerable people we support. Spectrum’s approach is always to put the patients at the heart of what we do.

We are building on our ambition to deliver the best in health and wellbeing on a values-driven ethos and to maintain the highest standards of patient care and service. We are an expanding organisation but we aim to grow without compromising on Quality and Social Value.
