Davenport Ward is a 20 bed mixed older person's acute ward which cares for patients experiencing a variety of mental health conditions who require thorough assessment and treatment which cannot be provided in the community.

Patients may be admitted voluntary or detained under the Mental Health Act.

Patients are admitted to Davenport Ward via a number of different sources including A&E, Community Teams or Consultant led referrals.

During the period of person centred assessment and relevant treatment, care is provided by a multi-disciplinary team consisting of medical staff, Registered Mental Health Nurses, Nursing Assistants, Occupational Therapists, Dieticians, Physiotherapists and Support Workers.

Following the period of assessment and treatment our patients are discharged safely back into the community setting with follow up from the community team.
