Our assessments can lead to a voluntary or compulsory hospital admission or discharge into the community with appropriate signposting and mental health service follow up.Our service is available every day, 24 hours a day.
Our site has disabled access and visitor parking.
If your concern relates to a current inpatient of the section 136 suite then please contact the suite directly.
If your concern relates to a service user in the community or member of the public then please contact the relevant mental health team involved, the local crisis team or the police should your concerns relate to risk and require immediate emergency response.
All of our service users have been detained under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act by the police and will be escorted by police to the suite.
All impending admissions to the section 136 suite should be discussed with the nurse on duty prior to their arrival.
