Who we are

We are an acute admission ward that works with patients who are detained for treatment under the Mental health Act.  This team is made up of Doctors, Nurses, Psychologists and Occupational Therapists.

Our team provide care and support to help patients become well enough to be discharged and where necessary receive care in their homes or in the community.  Services include:

  • On-going intensive intervention to support and help recovery resulting in discharge
  • Diagnosis, and appropriate care plan and treatment
  • A physical health check on admission and support with Social needs
  • Support to access advocacy services

Who is the service for

Adults aged 16 - 65 years who have been diagnosed with severe and enduring mental health problems who:

  • require admission to hospital for treatment under Mental Health Act to manage the risk associated with their symptoms
  • have been diagnosed as having acute and/or enduring mental health problems
  • cannot be cared for at home or in the community at the time of presentation

What are the next stages to recovery

When an inpatient is ready for discharge this will often be supported by the home treatment team for a period providing additional support whilst working alongside the care coordinator, carers and other stakeholders.
