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 Mett Centre is a mental health day resource centre in Leicester city centre, offering recovery-focused support, through individualised programmes of meaningful activities, physical and mental health promotion, social inclusion and therapeutic interventions. Our service is available to adults with complex and enduring mental health difficulties who have a Consultant Psychiatrist at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust and may be particularly suitable for individuals who are isolated socially and may currently find it difficult accessing mainstream services.
Sessions offered include creative activities, cooking, relaxation, health promotion and community access and as well as providing some structured routine and meaningful occupation all groups offer opportunities to develop in areas such as self-confidence, self-esteem and social skills through interaction. We also have a weekly drop-in when our clients can call in for some unstructured informal social contact.

The Mett Centre is located in Leicester City Centre and has easy access via public transport.
