The new modern, mental health inpatient facilities has 85 ensuite bedrooms. It provides short-stay treatment for local people with a range of mental health issues including depression, anxiety and dementia. Clock View also has a new psychiatric intensive care unit (Newton Ward) for those in the most distress in need of inpatient care.
The hospital is the base for a new local assessment and immediate care service that provides emergency, urgent and routine assessment, enabling better support for people between inpatient and community services. The building is operated as a 24hrs a day, 365 days a year operation and therefore the M&E services were designed to facilitate the ongoing operation and maintenance of these systems.
