Our Philosophy of Care –

  • We believe in clinically thorough and effective assessment which enables the stabilisation of mental health and wellbeing in the shortest time possible.
  • We believe in effective collaborative team working with people, their families/ carers, stake holders (including commissioners of the service) and the staff where the person’s needs are at the heart of care and treatment planning.
  • We believe in supporting people to be involved and take a lead in planning the delivery of their care and treatment.
  • We believe all treatments should be evidence based and our staff be specialists in mental health assessment, treatment and rehabilitation with an emphasis on attaining sustainable recovery and personal best for people.
  • We believe in investing in relapse prevention work with people in preparation for discharge back into the community to enable them to have greater control of their symptoms and treatment.
  • We believe that a placement with us should last only as long as the person needs that level of care hence an emphasis on recovery and social inclusion.
  • We believe in providing programs of recovery in accordance with the multidisciplinary team assessments and formulations.
  • We believe treatment models should embrace the principles of person centred recovery, underpinned by social inclusion, respect, dignity and robust positive risk management.
  • We believe in equality of opportunity and therefore encourage people (patients and staff) to learn new skills so they can grow and make successful contributions.
