The service sets out to provide effective mental health care to help service users recover from a mental health crisis, and support their rehabilitation to get back on track with their lives.

All inpatients have a thorough assessment of their care needs and risk. This leads to the development of a comprehensive treatment plan. A tailored rehabilitation programme will be put in place for each patient focusing on their specific needs and issues.

As well stabilising symptoms of mental illness, patients can access occupational and arts therapies, psychological interventions including substance misuse treatment and a range of medical services including regimes of therapeutic medication and the delivery of enhanced physical health care packages.

Each patient’s progress is managed by the clinical team utilising the Care Programme Approach which is based on a Recovery Model.

The ward has a multi-disciplinary team including mental health nurses, clinical support workers, clinical psychologists, a consultant psychiatrist, and medical staff.

They work in partnership with the outpatients' team, care co-ordinators, social workers, and GPs to support the patient through their inpatient stay.
