Acute Recovery Team

The Acute Recovery Nursing Team specialise in delivering Electro-convulsive Therapy (ECT). We also run Clozapine blood clinics as well as Olanzapine depot clinic. These clinics operate during the working week and are staffed by a specialist nursing team.

The ART Nursing Team Service comprises of the ECT (Electro Convulsive Therapy) Treatment Suite and the Clozapine and Olanzapine Clinics to provide monitoring, treatment and support for people undergoing these treatments in addition to that provided by wider community services.

The aim of the ART Nursing Team is to provide ECT, Clozapine and Olanzapine clinic services to both community and inpatient services. The clinics will provide appropriate monitoring as required and any adverse effects will be addressed. This service will contribute to the overall care and treatment of referred patients who require either ECT, Clozapine or Olanzapine treatment and will continue to offer its services to individual patients until no longer required.
