This week Partnerships in Care (PiC) will open two new rehabilitation units in Coventry and Leeds as important step down facilities for male and female patients respectively.
Woodland View in Coventry is a locked rehabilitation and recovery service for men requiring a positive environment to stabilise the symptoms of mental illness, and develop positive self-management and independent skills for a successful discharge into the community.
The unit has 30 beds across three wards – an Admission and Assessment ward and two community facing rehabilitation wards.
Spring Wood Lodge in Leeds is a locked rehabilitation recovery service for women requiring an integrated treatment approach, focusing on active rehabilitation in order to progress into future community placements.
The unit has 22 beds in total – 17 beds focusing on locked rehabilitation and recovery and 5 intensive crisis intervention.
Joy Chamberlain, Group Chief Executive, said:
“These services have been developed to enable patients to step down to an appropriate environment so that they can build the skills they require for successful movement into the community. Whilst many patients will chose to step down to these units, some patient may be referred from either acute, community or other rehabilitation services depending on their need.”
