What you can expect

Anyone who uses our services first gets an assessment of their mental health needs and a plan of the care and support they will receive. They will also will also have one named person who co-ordinates their care and support. This person will be called either a named professional or if your needs are more complex,  a care co-ordinator. This person should be your main point of contact.  You can speak to them about how you treatment and support are going. If  you come to hospital we will make sure you are given information about your rights and that you are only in hospital for as long as you need.  When you arrive you will be given a welcome pack which will give you and your family all the information you need to know  - like the visiting times and phone numbers.


Access to this service is through the care pathway from the acute in-patient services to the rehabilitation service and Community teams within the Trust (Wandsworth).

Normally referrals will be discussed with the Consultant Psychiatrist for the Phoenix Unit and an assessment will take place to decide suitability for rehabilitation.
