Acute Inpatient Wards and PICU Facilities

Acute admission wards provide inpatient care with intensive support for patients in periods of acute psychiatric illness. Patients who are in an acutely disturbed phase of a serious mental health disorder, are detained in designed Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) facilities.

Admission to acute inpatient wards is through our Crisis Teams. Patients’ needs in Medway are met by admitting them to a ward that meets their current needs rather than their age or diagnosis.
