On admission you will be allocated a bed on one of the seven wards where you will be orientated and given information about inpatient services. You will be allocated a consultant psychiatrist and a named nurse upon admission, jointly and as part of a multi-disciplinary care team, including psychology, occupational therapy, social care, and they will undertake a full assessment of your mental, physical and social needs. Working together collaboratively, we will develop a plan of care which meets your needs and promotes recovery.
