Acute wards for adults of working age and psychiatric intensive care units across the NHS Trust were all rated as 'good' by the CQC. The services were found to be providing effective care. All patients had a care plan which was regularly updated and patients had access to a range of care and treatment options which were in line with national guidance. Staff are supervised effectively and have access to additional specialist training, including CESR support.
Staff in the department and across the general adult services are caring. Feedback from patients and carers was consistently positive about staff attitudes. The service was organised in a way that ensured staff focussed on interacting and engaging with patients as opposed to administrative tasks.

Ward managers and senior managers are approachable, ensuring you will be well respected, supported and valued.
