Annesley House is an essential part of PiC Midlands full care pathway for women and offers both low secure service, inpatient rehabilitation and a recently introduced specialised high dependency unit. Patients who will benefit include those stepping down from secure services, or stepping up from the community or rehabilitation. The aim is to prepare for step down transfer, either within PiC services, to other services and in the longer term, to the community.
The women's service uses a 4-stage model of care - stabilisation, engagement and awareness, choosing change and maintaining recovery.
Therapy and care is centred on the recovery model. Care Plans form the basis for the patient’s subsequent care in the community.
The HDU ward serves women who, because of a high self-harm risk profile, need more intensive support than is required in standard inpatient rehabilitation, yet who, because of a low risk profile of harm to others, do not need the physical security restrictions of a low secure environment.
