TypeOlder People’s Inpatient Acute
Our facility provides a safe and caring environment for older people needing acute inpatient treatment. We support older people needing an inpatient setting for a period of assessment and treatment with mental health problems and dementia, providing medical treatment, therapy, nursing and holistic treatment.
We work to minimise the problems caused by impairment and disability, helping to empower older people and allowing them to lead a fulfilling life.

Smoking and vaping information
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 smoking and vaping options. We also offer nicotine replacement therapy.
All other users (whether service user, visitors or staff) must go offsite if they wish to smoke.
