The functional acute mental health wards accommodate patients from the age of 18 experiencing an acute mental illness requiring inpatient care. This also includes dual diagnosis of mental illness as the primary diagnosis, with personality order, learning disability or drug and alcohol misuse.

The advanced care wards accommodate older patients who are experiencing an acute mental illness that are also physically frail or who are also experiencing physical disability or illness.
