South Ward Dykebar Hospital
South Ward is an Acute Psychiatric Admission ward which caters for both male and female patients. There is a dual assessment of patients with both a medical and nursing assessment before admission is decided as best option for patients. Once patients are admitted, South Ward aims to promote a therapeutic environment, assisting recovery, through a multidisciplinary approach to care provision. We achieve this aim by empowering individuals, with mental health problems and their family/carers to make informed choices and decisions regarding their immediate care needs and ongoing support needs. Individuals will be encouraged by staff to make these decisions through provision of education, support guidance and advocacy services.
