The Trust has ten adult inpatient wards across the city of Manchester at North Manchester General Hospital (Park House) and Wythenshawe Hospital (Laureate House).
The multi- disciplinary teams on each ward specialise in caring for adults of working age, and offer assessment and treatment for a wide range of mental health needs. Inpatients include those who have been detained under the Mental Health Act (MHA) and other voluntary 'informal' patients. There is a strong emphasis on holistic, individualised care, planned and delivered in collaboration with each service user. Ward staff also work closely with community teams to ensure a seamless admission and discharge, enabling each person to return to their optimum health.
The adult inpatient care wards admit service users from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide range of mental health needs/ problems. The teams work hard to reduce anxiety about admission, and provide a supportive environment where an individual can feel safe and have appropriate quality nursing and medical interventions. There is shared planning towards successful discharge, and a person's sense of dignity, privacy and individuality is respected at all times.
We're investing £105 million in modern facilities with the construction of a new adult mental health inpatient unit to replace Park House on the North Manchester General Hospital site.
Work on the new building is expected to start this year with the new unit anticipated to be built and operational by 2024. Find out more about this new development here.
