Patients are first seen for an assessment with one of our Consultant Psychiatrists who identifies the issues that need addressing.
Some patients may need a more structured or intense approach to their treatment or need to be away from everyday situations that are contributing to their condition.
In-patients have their own individual bedroom, some single and some double, all with an en-suite bathroom.
In-patients follow a structured plan and take part in the group psychological programme which runs throughout the daytime.
What can I expect from In-patient Treatment?
Your consultant may recommend you are admitted to the clinic.
You will be allocated to a nurse-team who will co-ordinate your care. The team will be your key point of contact for any questions or concerns you may have. The nursing team are available at any time to discuss your concerns or problems and always in confidence. This is very therapeutic and can provide an intense start to your treatment. You can benefit from making good progress very quickly as well as receiving lots of input from members of the multi-disciplinary team.
You will stay in one of our 23 en-suite bedrooms and gain from taking part in the group therapeutic programme that runs throughout the day. You will also receive individual time with your consultant and/or therapist.
All meals are provided in our patients’ dining room. There is a choice of menu and our chefs are happy to cater for dietary requirements.
During your stay you will also have time for relaxation and contemplation as well as for use of our superb facilities. These include a heated indoor swimming pool, patients’ lounge and beautifully maintained extensive grounds. Your family and friends are welcome to visit you, but we do ask that they avoid group and meal times.
Your consultant will continually monitor your progress and keep you informed of any changes to your care plan or medication. Any required changes will be implemented as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Your consultant will decide, based on clinical judgement, when it is appropriate for you to be discharged from in-patient care. An individually tailored after-care programme will be devised in conjunction with you. This may mean attending the Clinic as a day or out-patient.
