Mental Health Liaison - Bassetlaw

Our liaison psychiatry team provides a service for patients in a general hospital setting, who are aged over 18 and experiencing mental health problems. Our patients will usually have presented to the Emergency Department or been admitted to an inpatient ward.

Our services include:

  • specialist mental health assessments
  • advice, guidance and support for patients, their families and carers

We also provide education and training for general hospital staff to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental health conditions, and to improve rates of early referral for patients to specialist mental health services.

Our service is available to:

  • any adult (aged over 18) presenting with a mental health emergency illness
  • 16 to 18 year olds between 5.00 p.m and 8.00 a.m. (out of hours patients will be seen and signposted to relevant specialist services at the earliest opportunity on the next working day)
  • adult inpatients of Bassetlaw District General Hospital of any age presenting with symptoms of functional or organic illness during their inpatient stay
