St Andrews Ward has 14 beds, providing assessment and treatment primarily for adults of working age experiencing an acute mental health problem. There is a team of specialist mental health doctors, nurses and therapists who work closely with the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment team. St Andrews Ward predominantly provides services for people who live in the Mendip area.
The ward consists of single rooms with dedicated areas for both males and females adhering to the national standards of providing gender sensitive care for individuals in hospital environments whilst still providing all service users the choice to freely socialise. We aim to provide a service that is sensitive to individual needs ensuring risk is minimised and managed effectively. Our aim is to work collaboratively with you, your family or carers, respecting your views, to develop an individualised package based on the recovery approach enabling you to take ownership of your care where appropriate, to support your stay in hospital
Although many admissions to inpatient services are on an urgent basis we recognise that there may be times when a planned admission to hospital is being considered. Under these circumstances if you would like the opportunity to visit the inpatient ward prior to admission please contact the Ward directly.
