Ellingham Hospital is a 34-bedded mental health centre which provides care to adolescents and young adults, aged 12 upwards, who have complex needs, including acute mental illness and developmental disorders.

The facility is split across three units:

  • Redwood – 14-bedded mixed gender ward
  • Cherry Oak – 10-bedded mixed gender ward
  • Woodlands – 10-bedded mixed gender ward

Redwood Ward

This is a specialist unit for those aged 18 years and above, where patients are supported with acute, complex mental illness, using a therapeutic approach within state-of-the-art facilities.

Our skilled multidisciplinary team includes a consultant psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, mental health nurses (RMNs) and occupational therapists, who work collaboratively with patients and their families to ensure the delivery of bespoke packages of care in line with individually identified outcomes.

Cherry Oak Ward

This is a specialist low secure tier 4 inpatient service for young people with complex neurodevelopmental disorders, learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and mental health problems.

Woodlands Ward

This is a specialist general tier 4 inpatient service for young people who may have a wide range of psychiatric, emotional, behavioural and social difficulties. This includes learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs).

Our approach

Recovery is at the heart of our treatment programmes at Ellingham and we incorporate:

  • Specialist assessments
  • Psychological input
  • Activity programmes
  • Integration with community services
  • Education
  • Emotional support
  • Discharge planning from the point of admission

We work with our patients, their families, community mental health teams, and social services to plan for transition out of inpatient care and back into the community as early as possible.
