Eating Disorder Service

Outpatient service

We are delivering significantly reduced services and all routine referrals / assessments are suspended.

Urgent referrals are being triaged by telephone and all patients are being risk assessed with telephone support or monitoring of weight and blood chemistry being provided as necessary. 

Carer support groups have ceased, but additional telephone support will be offered if needed.

Forensic FIRST team

The team will pick up virtual new assessments if it is safe to do so to facilitate discharge from a secure unit/ prevent admission to a secure unit.

Forensic In-Patient Wards

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have unfortunately had to temporarily put all visits to the wards on hold until further notice. Arrangements for virtual visits can be made available. Please contact the ward for further information.

Liaison and Diversion

The Liaison and Diversion service will operate a reduced provision.

Liaison and Diversion will be offering a telephone custody service, custody police will call if they need support. Outreach staff will offer telephone support when the individual concerned is released into the community.

The children’s offender health service will not be operating, but for any concerns the Local Authority can call the Service Manager.

Mental Health Services

The current situation is generating a lot of anxiety and we are doing all that we can to support those who are experiencing this.

We have set up a 24/7 urgent NHS mental health service providing telephone support, advice and triage. This service is available to anyone of any age.

Call 0300 124 0365.

Staff from different services are being moved to the Redwoods Centre to support the inpatient wards. The wards provide care and treatment to the most seriously ill.

This means that:

  • If you are under the care of a community mental health team, the care you receive or the person that provides that care may change. 
  • No routine assessment are being undertaken for people with suspected Dementia. The voluntary and community sector is providing keeping in touch and review calls.
  • BeeU service will be providing telephone and video consultations. The BEAM drop-ins have been temporarily suspended in line with national guidance.

Shropshire Sanctuary and MIND have extended their offer to support hospital avoidance.
