TypeAdult Inpatients Acute
Inpatient care allows us to closely monitor our patients and ensure that they are receiving everything they need for their mental and physical wellbeing.
The Kingfisher Ward is a 10 bedded mixed gender, treatment and recovery ward. They may take transfers from Sandpiper, Avocet and Shearwater wards.
On Kingfisher Ward, service users are continuing their recovery journey. The occupational therapy service will actively engage with all the service users in a group format and an individual format. This is dependent on the individual’s recovery needs.
A service user may be referred for short term inpatient psychology or for a psychological assessment whilst on Kingfisher Ward. The ward also has links with the short-term team. They may complete a referral for the patient if they have issues such as accommodation or benefit issues.
The focus of Kingfisher Ward is to continue working in a co-produced way so that the service user is actively involved in their care and care planning towards discharge. Throughout this journey the service user will regularly have their mental state and level of risk assessed.
Visit our Adult Inpatients Acute service overview page for more information on this service and referral details.

Proud to be smokefree
We know that quitting smoking reduces your chances of heart disease and lung cancer as well as improves your sense of taste, makes your skin look younger and reduces stress. That is why we are proud to be smokefree.
Remember smoking is not allowed anywhere, on any NHFT sites.
If you are an inpatient please speak to your ward matron about options for nicotine replacement. All other users (whether service user, visitors or staff) must go offsite if they wish to smoke.
