Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust provides a range of mental health, learning disability and substance misuse services to the people of Sheffield. Some of their specialist services support people from across the region, and their gender identity clinic receives referrals from across the country. They also provide GP services at practices across the city as part of the Clover Group Practices, managed in partnership with Primary Care Sheffield. Find out more about Sheffield Health here.

Staff and service users are currently being recruited from Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust for the Randomised Controlled Trial in WP4, and will be recruited in future for the Process Evaluation in WP5. If TACK is successful, staff will be recruited from Sheffield to develop the staff training module in WP6.
