What we offer

Avon ward is an intensive care unit and provides 16 male beds for patients who need more complex care.  Avon ward provides PICU (Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit) facilities for any patients in Barnet, Enfield and Haringey.

Who is the service for

Patients whose behaviour may be too challenging for an acute ward. Service users on Avon will move back to the acute wards as their mental health improves.

What are the next stages to recovery

When an inpatient no longer requires PICU they will be transferred back to acute wards.  Staff will then work with patients to facilitate discharge at the earliest opportunity. Home treatment teams will provide additional support to patients after discharge, alongside the care coordinator.

How you can access our service

All in patient wards and community teams and members of  judicial system can make a referral to Avon Ward. Avon Ward staff will then screen and discuss the referral with bed management team.
