Our approach

At Coral Lodge, we work in partnership with our patients to foster a culture of dignity, compassion, positive human rights and equality, where everyone feels valued, respected and has choices.

Our ‘Strengths Model’ of care focuses on recovery, promotes social inclusion and aims to combat stigma.

To ensure the best possible treatment choices for the patient, we provide a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) approach to the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of our patients.

Our MDT have a breadth of expertise and experience in adult mental health care. They are our greatest asset, and when asked what they like about Coral Lodge, our patients always put our staff at the top of the list.

They are highly trained professionals who deliver flexible packages of care, which are tailored to commissioner’s needs. In return, we ensure they feel valued by providing them with ongoing training, supervision and support.

We use the Care Programme Approach (CPA) which provides the framework for care co-ordination and resource allocation within mental health services and is an effective, efficient and transparent process.

We work with patients to enable them to manage their recovery by understanding their illness, learning how to control or improve their symptoms, and promoting independent living skills.

We promote a transitional care pathway, and every patient is assessed when they first arrive at Coral Lodge. We work with them (and their family or carer where appropriate) to put in place an activity programme to address their identified needs. on the treadmill

Patients are supported to focus on the ten core areas of their life identified in the Mental Health Recovery Star, and each individual has a plan, which is reviewed and amended in partnership with them throughout their stay to ensure it reflects their current needs, and is designed to provide a balance of therapeutic and recreational activities.

All patients have access to independent advocacy.

All patients at Coral Lodge work towards a return to independent living (with support packages). Their progress is regularly reviewed to ensure they don’t spend any unnecessary time in our facilities.
