Waterloo Manor is set in large grounds near Garforth which is within easy reach of Leeds City Centre.  Much of the site has been recently refurbished and has a bright, contemporary feel to it.  It is served by Garforth Train Station with direct links from Blackpool, Preston, Blackburn, Burnley, Manchester, York , Leeds centre, Huddersfield, Bradford, Halifax and Hebden Bridge. It is also accessible from the M1 from the South of the County and the M62 to the East and West.

Our Rehabilitation services have extensive high quality specification facilities for each including large communal areas, multiple dining and recreational rooms, rehabilitation kitchenettes, patients’ laundry, large single occupancy bedrooms and/or semi-independent apartments, with en-suite facilities, integrated courtyards and gardens.

The multi-disciplinary team at Waterloo Manor believe that this on-site care pathway, which includes pre-discharge semi-independent apartments, enhanced rehabilitation and positive risk taking opportunities to allow skills development to overcome traditional barriers to discharge.  The Rehabilitation Services helps further define the pathway through Waterloo Manor’s services to allow a seamless passage of care in the least restrictive environments based on level of risk and needs assessments.

Our ultimate aim is to reduce the length of stay for service users. The objective for the clinical team is to provide seamless, clinical and therapeutic treatment.

Our focus is on treating female patients with complex and enduring mental health conditions in the least restrictive environment who may or may not be detained under the Mental Health Act 1983. We have created a whole pathway of care for individuals to enable maintenance of therapeutic relationships to enhance recovery and continuity of care.

We have created a highly experienced team who have adopted the concept of recovery and provide a person centered approach which is aimed at rehabilitating patients to their optimum level of functioning thereby reducing their need for future inpatient care and reducing length of stay in hospital.  An ideal care pathway towards optimal functioning is possible with Waterloo Manor Hospital and our model of care facilitates a structured opportunity for patients to successfully move towards community based services.

Hazel suite has its own access and egress facilities which are supported via its own reception area. Whereas Lilac has an ‘open door policy’ whereby authorised staff and service users residing there are able to manage their own access and egress appropriately.
