Inpatient Care Service East Lancashire

    East Lancashire

    Adult Mental Health services provide individualised inpatient care across East Lancashire for people with severe and enduring mental health needs. 

    The wards provide single sex accommodation and serve the age ranges of 18 to 65 years. Care is delivered on a needs led basis in the least restrictive way possible and is planned following a robust assessment of needs by a variety of professionals making up the Multi-Disciplinary Team involved in the patient's care. Therapeutic engagement is positively promoted in a safe environment by staff who receive support, development and training in the delivery of the services we provide. Families/carers and service users are actively encouraged and supported to be fully involved in the planning of the service user's recovery journey of which our service forms part of and in providing feedback as to how our services are responding to the required needs of our client group.

    The wards have a well-established interworking relationship with community teams and other agencies exist, which help facilitate care in the least restrictive environment for our service users and help with the facilitation of early discharge from the wards, to home or other appropriate service providers.
