It is important to understand the circumstances and needs of the individual for admission and to organise appropriate treatment to support them in a return to better health and wellbeing.
Individuals who make applications for admission should normally be capable of independently undertaking the ‘Activities of Daily Living’ including self-care and self-medication. However each and every application will be sympathetically considered as a ‘significant and unique’ case and account will be taken of the support that an individual could themselves marshal to assist their circumstances e.g. accompanied by a ‘companion’ e.g. spouse/partner, son/daughter, friend.
The Charity’s provision is intended to be by way of short intensive treatment with the aim of helping the individual to make progress in resolving, or alleviating, a treatable condition.
Applications for admission must be supported by evidence of a clinical need that can be addressed by the Clinical Teams at the PTCs and a positive, measurable clinical outcome achieved.
Applicants for the psychological support programme will need to complete two short questionnaires as part of their application. They will then be contacted by a nurse for a confidential discussion of their needs before an admission will be agreed.
