Before admission, patients will be assessed by experienced Shannon Ward clinicians from Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust who will conduct a comprehensive mental health and medical assessment with a risk management plan. If the patient arrives on the ward during the out-of-hours period, they are seen the next morning by the medical team.
What happens before an assessment appointment?
Once we receive a referral, we check to see that we have all appropriate clinical information. If not, we will contact the referrer for further information and will engage with them to organise patient transfer.
What happens after the assessment appointment?
If there are no issues identified at referral stage, we admit patients to Shannon Ward and work with them to devise a patient centred treatment plan. We encourage the patient to be as involved in care plan development as they are able.
