Virginia Woolf Ward

How our service can help you

The Triage Ward (Ladywell Unit, Lewisham Hospital) is an assessment ward based at the Ladywell Unit in University Hospital Lewisham.

We provide assessment and care for people, aged 18-65, who have an acute psychiatric illness requiring 24 hour hospital care. Acute illnesses start quickly and have distressing symptoms. We assess people and either transfer them to adult inpatient acute wards or refer them to their community services. We provide care for people who live in the London Borough of Lewisham.
