During a stay on Laurel Ward all our patients will have a named consultant psychiatrist and a named nurse, who have a responsibility to plan their care and treatment on the ward with them and to make sure this plan is regularly reviewed to help them recover.
There will be a formal review of care at our ward round, and patients, along with any carers who have consent from the patient, will be invited to attend these discussions and
to contribute to the plan of care.
Patients are offered a copy of the care plan and can expect to have the information in the care plan discussed and agreed with them.
If medication is to be prescribed, we give patients information about the medication offered, the benefits of the treatment and information on side effects and risks.
