National Personality Disorder
Development Programme


Welcome the the Oxfordshire Complex Needs Service website

The Complex Needs Service is a new service funded directly by the Department of Health to develop ways of working with people with long-standing and hard to help interpersonal difficulties. The service is based in Oxfordshire Mental Health NHS Trust, and works in close partnership with Connection the floating support team, the Elmore Team, and Oxfordshire Mind.

We run groups in Oxford city, Banbury, Witney and Wallingford, with the aim of no-one in the county being too far from a group. In addition we have agreements with Buckinghamshire complex needs service that people from both counties can access either service according to which is best suited or easier to get to. A similar agreement with Berkshire complex needs service is pending.
