More information about Potters Bar Clinic
Potters Bar Clinic provides 23 acute beds, across two wards for men and women who have enduring mental health problems. Service delivery is driven by the principles of rehabilitation and recovery and the belief that everyone has the capacity for both. The overall aim is to deliver improved quality of life and independence for patients whilst working closely with professionals from the local mental health and social services teams. In partnership with all stakeholders the philosophy is underpinned by the need to provide robust risk management, social inclusion and the opportunity for independent living.
Ruby Ward is a 12 bed acute service for adult men.
Crystal Ward is an 11 bed acute service for adult women.
Both wards can accept emergency admissions for people who are in a crisis and who cannot be cared for safely in the community.
The overall aim of both services is to provide a stabilising environment, working with individuals to prevent further escalation of behaviours which in turn, will lead to an improved quality of life and independence.
