Hospital Care - Carbis, Perran and Fletcher Wards
Carbis and Perran Wards located at Longreach House, Redruth and Fletcher Ward within Bodmin hospital are acute mental health inpatient units. The main aim of these wards is to provide a safe environment for assessment and treatment, of people over the age of 18 with a mental health condition.
You could be treated on one of these units if you are experiencing acute distress and present with significant risk of self harm, deterioration/neglect or harm to others; need intensive assessment and immediate intervention; are at risk to yourself or others or are refusing treatment. You will only receive treatment on one of these units if your mental health condition cannot be safely managed in your own home, with support from our community teams.
If you stay on one of these units, you will have your own en-suite bedroom and access to communal gardens and lounge areas. A range of therapeutic activities are available on Carbis, Perran and Fletcher Wards.
Children under 18 are not permitted on the unit. If someone under the age of 18 needs to visit a relative on Carbis, Perran or Fletcher Wards, a family visiting room is available. Please ask a member of staff for more information.
All referrals are made via the Home Treatment Team. This is to ensure the patient cannot be cared for better at home.
We have produced information leaflets on Carbis, Perran and Fletcher which you may find useful.
