Bury

In Bury we provide a range of communitymental health and specialist services that aim to keep you healthy from the day you are born through to the end of your life. 

We work in partnership with a range of other organisations to deliver many of our services to make sure your care is joined up. This supports our commitment to providing integrated services that ensure you can benefit from ‘whole person care’.

In Bury, we are fortunate to have a dedicated GP link – Dr Alison Caldwell, from Unsworth Medical Practice.  Dr Caldwell plays vital role in our partnership working with GPs and commissioners.

Mental health services

Mental health services in Bury are led by Service Director Stan Boaler.

These services range from low-level support for people experiencing conditions such as low mood or stress, to greater levels of support from the community mental health teams or inpatient units at Fairfield General Hospital. In addition, there are dedicated services for older people, aged 65 or over, living in the borough.

In Bury, there is also a RAID (Rapid Assessment Liaison and Discharge) service that works closely with colleagues at the local hospital to provide more support to adult patients presenting at A&E with mental health problems, those with alcohol misuse issues and people with dementia.

A ‘Street Triage’ arm of this service is available to provide support and expertise to Greater Manchester Police and North West Ambulance Service colleagues if they come across a person in need of mental health support.

These are range of low-secure and rehabilitation units located across Greater Manchester.  The majority of units accept referrals for people across the Pennine Care footprint, and further afield where appropriate.

The aim is to support service users to reach their full potential with the aim of enabling them to safely integrate back into their local communities, where appropriate.
