About Waterloo Manor
The service provides intensive clinical and therapeutic treatment according to a detailed care plan that is written in partnership with the service user, their family, the funding authority and multidisciplinary team.
Our highly experienced clinicians provide a range of evidence based therapies for personality disorder according to the individual patient clinical presentation and needs. This often means that we provide bespoke packages of care, ensuring that each individual receives the most appropriate form of therapy for their needs.
We provide a comprehensive assessment of personality functioning by clinicians with specific training in personality disorder.
In addition, we have specific clinical expertise in delivering therapeutic input for substance/alcohol misuse and provision of a gender specific substance misuse programme.
During the first three months of admission, normally utilised as an assessment period within other services, we operate a specifically devised 12 week programme specifically targeting the presentation of suicidal ideation/intent where appropriate.
We set out clear anticipated timescales for recovery and targeted outcomes that are agreed by the individual and everyone involved in their care.
The WISE (Waterloo Integrated, Safe & Eclectic) framework is a care delivery approach taken across the entire hospital incorporating our secure service and locked and open rehabilitation services, which advocates a person centred holistic approach to care.
The ethos underpinning our service is based on therapeutic principles implemented by a specifically recruited staff team to provide for women with complex needs. The women in our care are actively listened to in order to develop a shared formulation based care plan.
The women in our care are offered individual therapy and assessment on a weekly basis and they may also attend group based interventions along with individual dynamic psychotherapy and trauma based interventions. All of these are delivered by the multidisciplinary team who through experience and training are able to deliver a range of evidence based models.
Waterloo Manor, as with all healthcare providers in the UK, receives regular announced and unannounced inspections from our regulator, the Care Quality Commission.
These inspections are welcomed and we value all recommendations from the CQC. Following this most recent visit, we are focused on making the necessary changes as a matter of urgency to ensure our care remains at the very highest standard possible and have developed and implemented a robust action plan to ensure all improvements needed are made.
We would like to thank the inspectors for also highlighting in their report the many good areas of practice and care that they found. The safety and well-being of those who use our services is always our top priority and we will continue to work with the CQC to ensure our service provides the very best standards of care possible.
Inmind Healthcare and their staff are always committed to delivering high quality care and continue to work closely with our NHS partners in ensuring the best outcomes for patients.
