Woodland View is a 31-bedded rehabilitation and recovery service for males requiring a positive environment to stabilise the symptoms of mental illness, and develop positive self-management and independent skills for a successful discharge into the community.
Adapting during the coronavirus outbreak
Sunita Heeley, Hospital Director at Priory Woodland View in Coventry, discusses how the team and patients have adapted during COVID-19. She shares positive ideas in continuing to support patients during this difficult time, allowing them to continue in their development, whilst observing government guidelines.
The hospital is made up of three separate wards:
- Elkin – 10 en-suite bedrooms led by a medical model with a focus on engagement and individual needs assessments
- Arley – 10 en-suite bedrooms introducing community-facing skills, led by a psychology model offering development of relapse prevention skills and symptom management
- Millison – 11 en-suite bedrooms delivering the opportunity to practice independent living skills, with a focus on engagement outside of the hospital, in order to provide a seamless transition into the community
Woodland View is a place where patients are part of the team. We work together to build the confidence and skills to re-join a meaningful place in the community, or just as often, start afresh.
Our recovery-based approach helps patients learn how to cope with difficulties, gain control of their life and make safe and healthy choices. Patients work closely with the team, their families (where appropriate) and access activities in the community.
The service also focuses on:
- Discharge plans offering clear plans of the pathway to leave the hospital
- Least restrictive practice
- Local community opportunities to build structure, skills and education, leading to self-sufficiency and reduction in risk profile
- Flexibility in delivering a care pathway structured around the needs of the individual, however complex they may be
