Recovery is at the heart of our unit’s philosophy and we pride ourselves on moving service users towards supported or independent living rather than transfer to another inpatient setting.
We aim to facilitate earlier discharge to community settings for those patients who have experienced multiple previous admissions and also have lengthy acute admissions on account of poor response to treatment and high levels of need. Our pathways assist patients move towards sustainable recovery.
Highlights from 2013/14
- 54% of our service users were discharged to independent living
- Average length = 9 months
