In Oldham and Bury we offer a rapid access service for Over 65s on medical wards experiencing physical and mental health problems. The role of the team is provide full mental health assessments for patients, support the general nurses who are caring for the patient and assist with discharge planning.

In North Manchester General Hospital we provide a service to all adults over 18 working with Manchester Health and Social Care Trust

In Rochdale we have two mental health nurses working on the Oasis Unit, a specialised five bedded unit designed to provide care for patients with a medical problem in a dementia friendly environment. The nurses also provide follow up in the community once the patient has been discharged.
