Service List

  1. Bethlem Adolescent Unit (Bethlem Royal Hospital)

    Bethlem Adolescent Unit is an open adolescent unit, offering mental health care for adolescents with serious mental illness who require hospital admission. We have developed a national and international reputation for innovation and have a comprehensive, all hours emergency admission service.

    The majority of the young people we treat are emergency admissions, however planned admissions can also be arranged. Admissions are accepted 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, and can be accepted under the Mental Health Act.

    Approximately half of the young people admitted to our unit have psychosis. Others have problems relating to their mood, often posing a risk to themselves. We are also able to admit young people with a variety of other psychiatric or neurodevelopmental disorders, or where there is diagnostic uncertainty.

    As we are an open unit, we are unable to admit young people who pose a level of risk that is not consistent with being cared for in such an environment. This judgement is always based on individual risk assessment rather than applying absolute exclusion criteria, and is reviewed regularly. People requiring care in a more secure setting can be admitted to the unit if the risk has altered.

    We provide a broad range of interventions, which are delivered by a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, teachers, occupational therapists, social workers and other therapists.

    We maintain close links with the person's referring team to ensure they experience a smooth transition back to the community. Day treatment is often used as a step-down service and can sometimes be used to avoid admission altogether.

    GPs, consultants, health professionals, referrers, commissioners and members of the public can find comprehensive information about this national service here:
    http://www.national.slam.nhs.uk/services/adult-services/forensic/

    Overview
    The purpose of our service is to ensure that mentally disordered offenders are assessed and treated effectively, in the least restrictive environment. We aim to manage the risk, reduce further offending and support recovery throughout the person's stay.

    Our service is designed to support people on a pathway to recovery through a series of carefully managed stages. Each of the ward areas are associated with a specific stage, so that those people who have responded well to treatment and are close to being discharged will be cared for in a different area than those who are acutely unwell, and at the beginning of their journey. Where our admissions and intensive care ward offers enhanced physical and procedural security, our pre-discharge unit offers a high level of independence with a lower level of security, increased access to community programmes, and community outreach services fostering the development of living skills, before moving to independent settings in the community. We also offer time limited inpatient stays and community assessments.

    Our service complies with the national standards set out in the Department of Health Best Practice Guidance: Specification for Adult Medium Secure Services (July 2007).

    Brook Ward
    Brook Ward is a medium secure forensic unit in River House at Bethlem Royal Hospital. We provide treatment and care for men, aged 18-65, who have mental health problems and a history of offending, who are close to recovery and moving towards their independence.

    A medium secure service provides inpatient care and treatment in a secure unit for people with offending behaviour. We support people through the final, managed stages of recovery. Our aim is to improve people's mental health and support their move to greater independence.

    Our team of health and social care professionals includes a psychologist, a social worker, an occupational therapist and nurses. We work with people and their families and carers to develop care plans to help prevent relapses, and to help identify early warning signs so they know how to get help in a crisis.

  10. Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma

    The Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma (CADAT) is an outpatient psychological therapy service. CADAT provides assessment and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) locally and nationally for specific anxiety disorders and depersonalisation disorder. We offer both online and face to face treatment. We will take specific requests into consideration for online treatment only but do recommend face to face treatment for some presenting problems. We will review each case on a case by case basis and discuss at assessment.

    Treatment with CADAT – online video calls and face to face

    We are pleased at CADAT to be able to offer clients the choice of whether they attend treatment (and assessment) sessions as online video calls (Microsoft Teams), or as face to face sessions or as a combination of the two.

    There are some types of anxiety where meeting in person is an important component of treatment, and in these cases we will request that you attend some or all of your therapy sessions in person. This may include agoraphobia where leaving the house will be an important treatment goal, or other conditions where in-person contact is important. The therapist for your assessment or treatment can discuss this with you. You are welcome to call us and discuss this with us prior to your assessment if this would be helpful, or if you have concerns about your ability to do this.

    For online video call sessions, we ask clients to have their camera on for all assessment and treatment sessions. We know that treatment is most effective where both the therapist and client can fully interact to most closely mimic face to face. We are aware that for some people this may be initially difficult to manage, in particular where conditions such as body dysmorphic disorder or social anxiety are the main problems. In treatment for these conditions, active use of the camera and being able to see our clients is important, so this is a requirement of treatment. Where this would be difficult to manage, you may wish to request face to face sessions through our service instead, or we can discuss how to access alternative services in your local area. If you have any questions about this please do call us prior to your assessment, or discuss with your assessing or treating therapist.

    Our service spans across primary, secondary, tertiary and highly specialist (Tier 4) care.We are unable to accept direct referrals from GPs registered within Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham. We are also unable to accept direct referrals from other SLaM services with the exception of referrals to our Highly Specialised Services for severe OCD and BDD (see below). CADAT forms a small part of each of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham’s Talking Therapy Services (aka IAPT) but referrals should be made direct to them for primary care. Secondary care referrals should be made direct to the appropriate CCG’s Funding Panel. GPs registered within Greenwich, Bexley and Bromley can refer direct and we will seek funding from your CCG. We are unable to accept direct referrals from Croydon and they should be referred to the Croydon Talking Therapies. GPs from outside our catchment area can also make referrals to our clinic directly using Patient Choice, with the exception of Depersonalisation referrals. Depersonalisation referrals can only be made via our National service stream and we always have to seek funding from the appropriate Clinical Commissioning Group in advance of being able to add the patient’s name to our assessment waiting list.

    CADAT holds a highly specialised service (HSS) contract, which is centrally funded by NHS England to provide treatment for people with OCD and BDD for whom numerous previous treatments have been unsuccessful. This particular contract is at no additional cost to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).
