Hospital Care/Bay and Fletcher Wards
Bay and Fletcher are our two hospital (inpatient) units for people with mental health problems and are located in Redruth and Bodmin respectively.
Bay and Fletcher aim 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 both Bay and Fletcher.
Children under 16 are not permitted on the unit. If someone under the age of 16 needs to visit a relative on Bay or Fletcher, 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 Bay and Fletcher which you may find useful.
Bay Ward relocation
Over the weekend of 11th to 12th May 2013, some of the beds on the current Bay Ward will be moved temporarily to a newly refurbished ward, downstairs, within the same building.
