Woodlands Hospital

Woodlands is an older adult inpatient facility located in Little Hulton, Salford. We accept referrals from Bolton and Salford Older Adult Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT) or via GMMH Liaison Team based within A&E departments at Royal Bolton and Salford Royal Hospitals. Our service users are either informal or detained under the Mental Health Act. Our staff offer patients and their carer’s information about mental health, recovery and the choices and resources available to them.

We provide 24 hour care for service users who need intensive support in managing their mental illness. Our aim is to help service users become well enough to return to living in their local community, whether that’s in their own home or in a nursing or care home.

Visitors and Visiting Times

Woodlands hospital has signed up to John's Campaign which is a national campaign for extended visiting rights for family carers of patients with dementia in hospitals in the United Kingdom, founded on 30 November 2014 by the writers Nicci Gerrard and Julia Jones. As such we do not have set visiting times and welcome carers to attend the ward at times that are conducive to the patients and carers needs.
