The hospital provides a campus style complex in spacious grounds, just outside of Darlington, with modern facilities and recreational spaces.

Admissions criteria

  • Females aged 18 or over

  • Informal patients or those detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 (amended 2007)

  • Females who present with complex and challenging behaviours related to complex mental health disorders

  • Individuals who may have a history of failed or difficult placements and would benefit from a period of rehabilitation in a patient centred, recovery focused environment

  • Females whose care needs require a bespoke treatment pathway

  • Patients with treatment resistant mental health disorders

  • Females with poor ADLs, who require further rehabilitation in order to progress to more independent community settings

Dalton rehabilitation service provides a robust multi-disciplinary programme of care for women with complex needs that will empower them to manage their own risk and recovery. We use a recovery based model of care which recognises the seven principles of recovery: hope, a secure base, a sense of self, supportive relationships, empowerment and inclusion, coping strategies and purpose. Our service is patient centred, multi disciplinary, comprehensive and collaborative focused on achieving realistic goals and ensuring an effective pathway to the community.
