Our Acute Inpatient Services are primarily for people of working age who have been assessed via the Crisis Assessment Services as individuals who require assessment and treatment. However the service is flexible and can admit other service users dependent upon their needs.
People who are admitted to The Becklin Centre and to Ward 4 at The Newsam Centre have complex and acute mental health needs, and will have significant risks which need to be managed in a 24 hour care service.
The service is available for people with mental health needs, those with learning disabilities and mental health needs and those who are detained under the Mental Health Act.
All wards are open with access and egress systems and admit both informal and detained service users. The Becklin Centre has two single sex male wards and also the Women’s Service which is comprised of two single sex female wards. Ward 4 at The Newsam Centre is a male ward.
Concentrated and intensive interventions are provided by a range of professionals who are knowledgeable and skilled in the management of people in crisis and at risk. Service users have access to the Healthy Living Services including dietetics, physiotherapy and gym services as well as a range of occupational and vocational therapies.
