Our bed-based services

The wards at Harplands Hospital provide overnight facilities for the admission, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mentally ill patients.

There are three wards in total. Ward 1 also provides a Place of Safety bed, which supports people in severe crisis who have come into contact with the police. There are 58 beds across the three wards providing general acute psychiatry care.

The wards link into community-based services in the Integrated Community Mental Health Resource Centres based across Stoke on Trent and North Staffordshire.

The staff on the wards work closely with the Access team and the Acute Home Treatment Team, as well as with other therapy teams based within the hospital, to support people in their recovery.

The Acute Home Treatment Team and staff from the community-based teams visit the wards on a regular basis, to assist people in their discharge from hospital.

The wards are also supported by bed-based rehabilitation services at Hilda Johnson House, Longton and Summers View, Tunstall.

We also provide electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) treatment from our ECT Clinic.

Who is eligible for this service?

Adults aged between 18 and 65 who have had an assessment which determines that they need inpatient psychiatric care.

Patients are admitted on a voluntary basis or on a Section of the Mental Health Act (1983) where this is deemed necessary.

Referral routes

Referrals are through the Access Team.
