Ward B1

Ward B1 is an Assessment Ward for mental health concerns providing care for 15 patients over the age of 65. The ward provides support and reassurance to both the patient and their carers.

The ward is 2 separate units compromising of:

Blyth Unit - This has 10 beds for patients with an illness caused by a medical or physical disease such as Dementia.

Clumber Unit - This has 5 beds for patients with an illness which is the result of psychological factors such as depression, anxiety, psychosis etc.

 

We offer a range of specialist services to those with mental health needs including: assessment of daily needs / psychology assessment / cognitive assessments.

Patients will usually be assessed over a period of a few weeks then decisions are made jointly with carers and other agencies about future care.

The ward links in to a number of other services such as community psychiatric nurses, dementia outreach nurses, Intensive Recovery Intervention Service (IRIS) and others which enables an assessment to be complete and discharge to be planned.
