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.

Our Inspection Reports

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.
