Longreach House - Perran and Carbis Wards

Perran and Carbis Wards are acute psychiatric admissions units offering assessment and treatment for people aged 18 and over, who predominantly are from the west of the county and the Isles of Scilly.

Visiting

As part of our commitment to keep people safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19 visiting has been suspended until further notice.

In exceptional circumstances, an immediate family member or carer will be permitted to visit:

  • if the person is receiving end of life care and is not COVID-19 positive
  • you are the parent or appropriate adult visiting a child
  • you are supporting someone with a mental health issues such as dementia where not being present would cause the patient to be distressed.

Please contact the ward in advance to discuss appropriate arrangements. We can help you by facilitating telephone or video calls as an alternative to visiting in person.

Everyone’s health, safety and wellbeing remain our absolute priority.  More information can be found here 

You would be admitted to Perran and Carbis Wards if you were experiencing acute distress; there was concern for your own safety or that of others as a result of your mental health.
