By integrated working with local health and social care services, Barchester's independent hospitals can support individuals with mental health issues through integrated care pathways designed to lead back to independence.

Quality and Service Improvement tools
Providing step-down services and linking with a range of provider and community-based organisations Barchester supports individuals in maximising their potential to maintain, develop or gain skills through a re-ablement and recovery approach, helping people to move on to a less dependent setting when they are ready.
Our hospitals also provide long-term support to people who require it, with an emphasis on quality of life, independence, dignity and choice.
