We care for men with a diagnosis of mental disorder and associated challenging behaviour. Here, we offer patients assessment and specialised treatment. We have a full care pathway with medium secure wards, low secure wards, and a rehabilitation wing, Tennyson House. The North London Clinic won a LaingBuisson Award in 2013 for its care pathways.
Another fantastic achievement by the team at the North London Clinic was the recent 'Outstanding' award in the 2015 CQC report, the first mental health service in England to receive 'Outstanding' rating under the new CQC regime. Read the CQC's press release here.
Here are some of the comments received:
“Staff understood and shared the values of the organisation and were passionate about the work they did. There was a strong culture of patient involvement across the service which was driven by a committed multi-disciplinary team.”
“The culture of the service was open and transparent. There was excellent leadership at both ward and senior manager level and a culture of and commitment to continual improvement and innovation.”
“There was a good range of group and individual activities available. Everyone had an individual activities and therapies timetable. Staff promoted community integration and social inclusion and supported patients to use local community facilities to support their recovery.”
“We observed positive, kind and caring interactions between staff and patients. Care was person centred and recovery orientated.”
At the North London Clinic we offer ‘rapid response admissions’ within eight hours. 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. We strive to support links for patients with their family and friends and to give them as much information about their choices.
