New mental health service at Barnet General Hospital
A new mental health service to help patients access care closer to their homes is being piloted across three north London boroughs.
Barnet, Haringey and Enfield’s new crisis resolution and home treatment service will allow patients to access help at their GP surgery, home or at hospital casualty departments.
New services include a psychiatry department at Barnet General Hospital, which will work with patients over the age of 16.
The trial will last for three months to determine whether the changes have delivered improvements to patients' health.
The service will replace the acute assessment centres, which will close on Monday November 4.
Michael Carden, senior communications manager for the Barnet, Haringey and Enfield NHS Mental Health Trust said: “It’s about making it easier for our patients. It’s not common practice and it makes it easier to fit in individual needs.”
