  1. National Affective Disorders Service

    The Affective Disorders Outpatient Service is a national, specialist outpatient service at Maudsley Hospital. We provide assessment, treatment and care for people aged over 18 who have complex or treatment-resistant mood disorders, including depression and bipolar disorder.

    NADS is a “tertiary” specialist service, patients must be referred by their local psychiatrist who they have ongoing engagement/care with. Referrals must be approved by each patient’s local Integrated Care Board.

    The Service does not treat urgent or emergency patients, therefore if a patient is currently suicidal or there are other current ongoing self harm issues the patient must not be referred to NADS and should be managed by their CMHT until stable and can then be referred to NADS.

  3. National Psychosis Service - Inpatients

    The National Psychosis Service (NPS) is a clinical-academic tertiary service offering innovative individualised evidence-based multidisciplinary strategies to help those people with complex psychosis, including schizo-affective disorder, where standard treatment guidelines have proven ineffective or have not been tolerated. The service aims to enhance quality of life through tailored treatments and promotion of recovery thus reducing the need for high intensity placements and the risk of readmission.

    Internationally renowned expertise in resistant psychosis is provided by a team of dedicated clinicians offering comprehensive medical reviews alongside innovative, bespoke treatment approaches. Themes include complex co-morbid physical health conditions which directly affect psychiatric treatment options; clozapine re-challenge after a significant adverse reaction; clozapine non-response.

    Our specialist service is supported through established partnerships with the academic Departments of Psychosis Studies and Psychology based within the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London. We also liaise with clinical experts within other specialties across King’s College London and King’s Health Partners. The National Psychosis team is closely linked to the Maudsley Pharmacy and the other national specialist mental health services.

    The service aims to enhance quality of life through collaborative working towards recovery. We regularly audit and publish our service outcomes and receive excellent feedback from our patients and their families. Benefits include reduction in psychosis, less frequent episodes of illness, improved social functioning, better understanding of the illness by the patient and carers and enhanced engagement with physical and mental health care plans. We have published evidence that admissions result in reduced morbidity, fewer days spent in hospital, lower antipsychotic doses, substantial reductions in the risk of readmission or high intensity placements and less expensive long-term costs.

    As our patients may be a long way from home, we aim to make admissions as short as possible and communicate regularly with carers, the referring team and CCGs or CSUs to plan care and facilitate timely discharge.

  6. Neuropsychiatry and Brain Injury: Inpatient Service

    The Lishman Unit is a 15-bedded inpatient ward located at the Bethlem Royal Hospital. This is a specialist neuropsychiatry inpatient unit offering multimodal assessment and treatment by a multidisciplinary team of experts. 

    We also have significant experience in complex discharge planning for patients who require ongoing care and support after leaving hospital. 

    This is a national service which accepts referrals from the whole of England. Once referrals have been accepted, the team carries out a pre-admission assessment to determine suitability for admission. 

    We generally admit two types of patient: 

    • Patients with severe functional neurological disorder (FND): We are one of very few specialist inpatient units in the UK who admit patients with severe disabling FND. Please be aware that because there are only a small number of such units nationwide, this service receives a very high number of referrals and the waiting time for admission is lengthy. The inpatient treatment programme involves multidisciplinary therapy input from a team comprising physiotherapy, occupational therapy, clinical psychology, and speech and language therapy, in addition to medical and nursing input. Admissions typically last 12 weeks, though this can vary.
    • Patients with neurological disease or damage who require complex neuropsychiatric treatment and/or neurorehabilitation: Mostly these are patients who have sustained an acquired brain injury (ABI) but we also take patients with neurological conditions (for example, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, post-encephalitis) when these conditions are associated with cognitive problems or other psychological issues. Many of these referrals come from other hospitals and we are usually able to admit these patients within two to three weeks. The unit does not usually admit patients with severe alcohol-related brain damage (ARBD) as these patients generally require slower-stream rehabilitation. 

    We also occasionally admit unusual cases where diagnosis may be unclear. If you are unsure whether a particular patient is suitable for this unit, we are always happy to discuss cases.

  10. Norbury Ward (Bethlem Royal Hospital)

    This is a specialist service, available to people from across the UK.

    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 becared 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).
