Luton and South Bedfordshire Crisis Team

Luton and South Bedfordshire Crisis Team,
Calnwood Court,
Calnwood Road,
Luton  LU4 0FB

The Crisis Resolution / Home Treatment (CRHT) teams work with a group of patients, who, without this support, would need to be admitted to hospital, or who cannot be discharged from hospital without intensive support. The service enables patients who are in crisis, and not able to function at their normal level, to be supported in their own homes.

The service operates 24hrs daily.
