Kipling Ward offers an admission and assessment service for females with challenging behaviour who may have a diagnosis of Functional mental illness or organically mediated conditions.
The ward has 14 female beds in total.
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 physical health nurses who look after the physical wellbeing of all our patients.
Each unit has two communal lounge/dining area and ladies only lounge, a range of ensuite bedrooms, communal bathrooms and toilets, as well as access to extensive, secure fenced-off garden area which includes patio area.
