Services we provide
Neuropsychiatric Rapid Response
We offer rapid assessment for patients whose behavioural presentation and/or cognitive function has deteriorated and is difficult to manage in their home or their community setting. Our specialist MDT offer rapid stabilisation and intensive therapy in a safe environment, facilitating a person's return to community once the crisis period has subsided.
People with an acquired brain injury or those with progressive neurological disorders, such as dementia or Huntington's disease (HD) can experience periods of challenging behavioural disturbance as a result of their condition, posing a risk to themselves or others.
If a person's agitated presentation is increasing the level of supervision and care required to support them in their existing acute or community setting, we can offer a short-term placement where our expert MDT and bespoke environments can work with people to transform behaviours that challenge into patient engagement.
Based at our Northampton site, our neuropsychiatric service means that patients have access to over 140 acres of green space, onsite cafes and recreational and vocational facilities.
We can admit patients, including those detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 (as amended in 2007), with the following conditions:
Patients admitted will be displaying behavioural difficulties/disturbances that compromise their own safety or that of others and which cannot be safely managed or treated in their current setting.
