Silver Birch Ward

Silver Birch is a 20 bedded assessment ward. We are open to people aged 65 and over who have a diagnosis of dementia or challenging behaviour.

We are also here for anyone aged over 18 with a mental health condition that is caused by a medical or physical disease (rather than a psychiatric illness).

Age UK Notts’ Worry Catcher Service provides a free, confidential and independent support service for both patients and their families and carers. Please use the following leaflet for further information regarding this service: Worry Catcher Service Leaflet.pdf[pdf] 2MB
