About Project Fusion

About Project Fusion

Our aim is for everyone to have equal access to our services with the same chance to get better. We understand that over the coming years, the number of people using community, mental health and learning disability services will increase in line with our diverse and growing population in our local communities. We are already responding to the growing need, with more people accessing our services, with increasingly complex needs.

In January 2022, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care Board commissioned an independent review of community and mental health services across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, to find out how we can best meet the current and future demands of our local populations.

The review made five recommendations which you can read in full here. One of the review’s recommendations was that a new organisation should be formed, to bring together all NHS community, mental health and learning disability services provided in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight - including all the services provided by Solent NHS Trust, Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, the community, mental health and learning disability services provided by Isle of Wight NHS Trust, and the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services provided by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in Hampshire.

Project Fusion is the temporary project name for 'bringing together community, mental health and learning disability services across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight'.  Our ambition is to create the new organisation by July 2024.
