We provide a seven days a week inpatient and crisis home treatment service if you have a severe mental illess or you are in an acute mental health crisis.
Your GP can refer you to our Access and Assessment team who assess your needs and refer you to the most appropriate service.
Our service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We encourage you and your carer to be involved with your care planning to enable a timely recovery. We support you and your carers in the least restrictive way. Where possible, we provide support and treatment in your own home and only admit you to hospital when necessary. If admitted to hospital, we try to discharge you at the earliest opportunity. We work collaboratively with you, your carers and all other services involved with your care. Please note if you are 14 to 18 you may be assessed by the crisis team if you need this out of hours.
You might stay on our wards from a few days to a few weeks. We work closely with you to determine the best treatment while you are here and review this regularly. We have activities on the ward that might be appropriate including use of gym equipment and arts and crafts sessions. We see you either once a day or once every few days depending on the severity of your condition. We come to your house for about half an hour, and typically we discuss your medication and any problems you are having.
