The North London Clinic provides a full care pathway from medium secure, low secure to a locked rehabilitation wing. The full multidisciplinary team works with men who have a diagnosis of mental disorder and associated challenging behaviour.
Our extensive facilities give patients every opportunity to retain and learn skills which will help them recover and reintegrate into the community when it is appropriate for their care.
Our treatment programmes are led by a team of highly experienced and qualified professionals and includes:
- Occupational therapists
- Nursing team
- Social workers
- Healthcare assistants
The team works with patients to enable them to learn, retain skills and confidence to prepare them for a successful discharge into the community wherever possible.
All patients are assessed as required, their medication and risks reviewed, and psychological assessments take place, including cognitive, personality, projective assessments. One-to-one psychology sessions provide support and counselling so patients can address behaviour and risk and prepare the patient for re-engagement into the community.
We believe the environment in which our therapy takes place, is just as important as the treatment itself and we provide:
- Fitness room
- Occupational therapy kitchen
- Games and leisure room
- Courtyard and grounds access for sports and exercise
- Computer suite including Microsoft work and supervised internet access
- Local transport links including bus services, links to underground and over-ground rail
- Community resources
- The hospital is close to Edmonton town centre and has community resources available to the patients who have leave
