Adult acute mental health service
Altrincham’s acute service aims to achieve minimum lengths of stay by providing an extension to NHS care pathways during times of fluctuating demand. Our team works closely with referring Trusts and we work collaboratively with discharge teams, to ensure a smooth transition back into existing community services, or to an individual’s home where possible.
Our acute unit at Altrincham is Tatton Ward, a 14-bedded, mixed-gender unit for adults aged 18 years and older in need of care for a range of mental health conditions. A patient may:
- Be showing risk of violence and aggression
- Be at risk of suicide
- Have varying levels of risk
- Have previous failed placements
Child and adolescent eating disorder service
We provide a specialist inpatient service for young people aged 11-18 struggling with eating disorders including:
- Anorexia nervosa
- Bulimia nervosa
- Binge eating
Altrincham’s inpatient provision provides a seamless transition between higher and lower dependency, offering the best opportunity for the young people in our care to achieve positive outcomes. For more information please click here.
