Our approach 

Eleanor Hospital operates a whole pathway approach, ensuring that intensity of treatment is suited to the service user. The pathway operates within a system of close administrative and clinical cooperation. This includes the availability of upwards referral when somebody is not engaged, deteriorating, or causing dynamic problems within a group or service, indicating a need for greater intensity of intervention. Each of the four services deliver an integrated programme of milieu and psychosocial interventions, incorporating the whole service (service users and staff) as therapeutic agents. Eleanor Hospital is committed to providing a safe and secure space that is innovative and individualised.

Our innovative virtual experience centre provides the people we care for with access to a wide range of experiences without having to leave the premises. The centre can be teamed up as a gym to provide a safe environment to work through anxieties.

The wellness centre café and kitchenette is a space where our people gain necessary skills to ensure they are proficient in not only life skills, but also gain hands-on experience of business knowledge, helping them to gain work upon successful completion of their discharge plan.
