Fettle Rehabilitation Service
Fettle House provides psychiatric rehabilitation for people with a long term mental illness. The aim of the unit is to help people live more independently.
Visiting (updated January 2021)
Due to the current increase in cases nationally and locally, we urgently need to reduce the number of people coming to our hospitals.
We have therefore taken the decision to restrict visiting unless:
- A person is receiving end of life care, regardless of their covid status
- Are visiting a child – one parent
- Is in the person’s best clinical interests and agreed in line with our internal processes
If you are visiting in one of these circumstances, please arrange this with us first. We will ask you to sign a risk assessment. We will provide you with personal protective equipment.
We know you will want to stay in touch while your relative or friend is in hospital. Patients are able to use their own or one of our mobile devices to telephone, video call or message.
Please bear in mind the confidentiality of other patients when you do this.
Our ward staff should be able to help you to stay in touch using a mobile device. You can also contact or arrange to send messages via our patient experience team by calling 01208 834620 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Located within the grounds of the hospital, Fettle House is a distinct unit. All the patients have their own en-suite bedrooms. The unit provides a friendly, homely environment. While a patient you will be encouraged to develop life skills; for example personal care, dealing with domestic chores, managing money and being encouraged to participate in social activities. The goal is to help you move out of hospital and into your own home or into support accommodation where there is a lower level of support.
To support this achievement of these goals there is a shared kitchen, garden and access to a range of recreational activities.
This is aided by the fact the unit is set slightly apart from the main hospital. This provides more freedom for the patient but also provides quick access to specialist support if needed.
