About the service

Stanley ward is a 22 bed male inpatient mental health ward. The unit admits working age adults aged between 18 and 65 with mental health needs who are in crisis and cannot be cared for in community settings.

We aim to provide an atmosphere that promotes safe, timely and therapeutic treatment. All service users are allocated a primary nurse and an associate nurse who work alongside the individual to plan care and treatment. Service users see their doctor at least once a week to review their treatment plans and evaluate progress in their recovery.

Why would someone choose the service?

91% of people we see said they were treated with dignity and respect by our staff at all times.

We have a dedicated therapy team who offer a wide range of activities including physiotherapy, Mindfulness (a technique used to help you relax), gym sessions, hydrotherapy, gardening, tai chi, arts and crafts.

We won an internal Trust award for our ‘Back on Track’ group. This is an educational group that covers topics such as anxiety management, budgeting and help to sleep.

To help make Stanley ward a welcoming place for visitors we have created a relaxation room and a dedicated child visiting room.

Our staff always listen to feedback and aim to improve the service that we provide based on this. We spend time with individuals, building a therapeutic relationship based on working together. You will always be the centre of your care.

865 of our service users would recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment.
