Reduced services due to Covid-19
Together with the rest of the NHS, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust is preparing for the unprecedented demands of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. During this time, your care may change a little, for example it may be delivered in a different way, or may have to be postponed for a while. We will try to explain why we have to take these steps below.
As a result of the outbreak, we are prioritising the care we normally provide, and some services will be restricted or closed. We will be writing to patients who are affected. If you were expecting to attend one of our clinics in the next few days and have not received a letter, please phone the number provided on your original appointment letter to confirm whether you should still attend.

The service is for adults aged 18 and over who, without this service, would require hospital admission to an acute mental health ward, due to mental health crisis which impacts on the person’s ability to cope with day-to-day activities.
We accept all mental health diagnoses with the exception of where drug and alcohol abuse or dementia is the primary diagnosis.
Who to contact if you need an interpreter or information about disabled access
At the point of referral the service user can request the assistance of an interpreter which the Crisis team will arrange.
