We offer intensive support in your own home by a team of experienced practitioners as an alternative to hospital admission. Initially this will consist of a medical review from a Consultant Psychiatrist followed by a three-day assessment to identify your needs and the support/treatment you require. The nature of this support will be discussed with you and the people who support you. We can also provide you with support when you are discharged from an inpatient ward, if discharge planning indicates you need further intensive support.
We take referrals from Integrated Delivery Teams, the Access and Assessment team, the Crisis Pathway Teams and take referrals from inpatient wards to help towards your early discharge.
We operate 365 days a year. We can be contacted through a pager system 24 hours a day.
The Home treatment Team does not provide support for people not under their current care.

During your treatment, family and Carers form part of your assessment and care. With your permission, we may ask to speak regularly to your relative and Carer in order to receive and provide information, offer support and work collaboratively towards your overall care. We have links with community resources for Carers and can direct you to these as appropriate.
