What you can expect
Lilacs Ward is an acute psychiatric admissions ward which in addition to the high level of nursing care takes a holistic view of each client’s problems. In addition to medical treatment, service users are offered a wide range of other psycho-social interventions. We provide a weekly evaluation of treatment and assessment by the multi-disciplinary team where service users will have the opportunity to discuss their treatment, progress and future plans. The ward is staffed 24 hours a day mainly by nurses and health care support workers. The nursing team work in three shifts over a 24-hour period, ensuring the care & safety of all service users and staff on the ward. Also, the ward has a full-time Occupational Therapist, an activity coordinator and a part-time clinical psychologist.
The ward has separate sleeping areas for both male and female service users with their own facilities, including separate shower and toilet facilities. There is a separate female lounge and a mixed day room which has a television and computers for service users. There is a dining room where the meals are served and service users can sit down to eat. Also, there is an activity area where activities for service users are carried out. The ward has a utility room, so that service users can wash and dry their own clothes. There is an outside courtyard with seating and a table tennis table.
The ward only accepts referrals via the Trust bed management team.
