The Trust has ten adult inpatient wards at 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.
