Edith Shaw Hospital is a 14 bedded, female only, locked - with secure fencing, independent hospital which aims to provide mental health rehabilitation in a secure, relaxed and homely environment in which quality care, well being, security and comfort are of prime importance.
There are two lounges, a garden area, communal toilets and bathrooms, with all patients' bedrooms having en-suite facilities. The hospital is located on the outskirts of the town of Leek and provides immediate access to town facilities for those patients who wish to access the community independently or with assistance.
We have an excellent reputation for being able to meet complex mental health and physical need of our service user population - in the case of physical needs we do this by having an enhanced General Practitioner contract with our local GP service. This includes a visit from a GP once a week and a visit from a clinical nurse specialist twice a week. We also employ our own wellbeing nurse who is a qualified Nurse Practitioner.
The hospital follows the relevant standards of the NSF for older people:
1) Rooting out age discrimination
2) Person-centred care
3) Mental health in older people
4) The promotion of health and active life in older age
