The Willows is a small, six-bedded inpatient community-facing rehabilitation unit for females with mental illness and/or personality disorder.
We aim to build autonomy for our patients, through access to community-based activities and learning. We also promote activities of daily living (ADL) skills via our self-catering provision which has ongoing support from skilled professionals where required.
The Willows strives to keep person-centred care at the forefront of our provision, with patients taking the lead in designing their own care, treatment and recovery plans. We aim to empower individuals by preparing them for their next step, to open conditions or discharge into the community.
