Our aim is to support individual service user recovery and integration back into the community, as quickly as possible. We have a multi-disciplinary team of specialists and offer a very broad range of therapies.

“I have had a most wonderful 8 months on Bewick ward. The staff are really nice, caring and supportive. I was involved in my care throughout. I was involved in all decisions and plans about me and was able to even write my own care plans and part of my CPA reports.” Service user

All of our bedrooms are en-suite; we also have an enclosed garden, plus several balcony areas, that are accessible 24 hours a day. Other facilities include a fully equipped, air-conditioned gym, two occupational therapy kitchens and telephone conference facilities.
