Boughton Ward

Boughton ward is an 18 bed inpatient unit caring for males between the ages of 18-65 who are acutely unwell.

The ward consists of our multi-disciplinary team of health care assistants, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, junior doctors and a consultant.

Patients will also be offered therapeutic activities by the occupational therapy team and will be reviewed by the consultant during the weekly ward review.

Protecting our patients

When visiting any of our inpatient wards you must wash your hands, follow our 2m social distancing policy and wear a face covering  where required to do so.

Wards may insist upon other individual arrangements to help protect you during your visit. We advise for all visitors to contact the ward staff ahead of their visit to check for further guidance.
