Admission unit with specialized psychiatric nursing care

  • We have a purpose built ‘inpatient admission ward’ for people suffering from a mental health problem, who are acutely unwell, to a degree that care needs to be provided in a hospital setting.
  • This ward provides a safe and therapeutic environment for assessment, and treatment for a range of mental health disorders, in the most acute and vulnerable stage of their illness.
  • This is a 15 bedded unit with separate rooms for male and female inpatients and provision for carers to stay with them, who are willing to.
  • The patients reside on the ward for a period of time (usually few days to weeks)
  • The service is 24 hours a day.
  • These are open wards and allow treatment in the least restrictive manner possible.
  • These wards are specially built with adequate planning to minimise risks and maximise the safety of the patients who are mentally distressed.
  • We have a special ‘De-escalation Unit’ with trained nursing staff, for people who are presenting with disturbing and challenging behaviour.
  • There will be provisions for 24 hour medical care from psychiatric and medical Doctors.


  • All aspects of physical and mental health, social care needs and risks are jointly managed by a multidisciplinary team comprising of doctors, psychiatric nurses, psychologists, occupational therapist and mental health support workers.
  • All staffs are trained in risk assessment and management and can deal effectively with patients at risk of self harm, suicide, agitation & violent behaviour.
  • During their stay, the patients will be involved in meaningful physical and mental activities to offer structure and stimulation throughout the day.
  • The Doctors and other staff members will aim to offer psycho-education to patients and their families, run group activities and provide supportive counselling to deal with mental health issues.
  • The care plan will be tailored to the individual needs of the patient, and would involve both the patient and the carers involved in their care.
  • There will be appropriate discharge planning arrangements with follow-up plans and a crisis management plan in place with 24 hours helpline support.
