Shannon Ward is a 12 bed female psychiatric intensive Care Unit (PICU) located in St Charles Hospital which provides high quality, psychiatric intensive care in a safe, comfortable, stimulating, friendly and secure environment for female patients who are experiencing an acute period of mental illness and are detained under the Mental Health Act.
We accept urgent admissions from across the country on a spot purchase basis where there is availability and aim to respond to all referrals within an hour of receipt of adequate clinical information.
Referrers and carers can be assured that any patients referred to the service remain onsite within Central London. We have a multi-disciplinary team of specialists who work in partnership with local services/referrers to deliver short-term and long-term treatment plans.
