Crisis and Home Treatment Team
|Address||Springfield University Hospital, |
Building 1, Entrance 2, Floor 1
61 Glenburnie Road,
|Description||The Crisis Line provides advice, information and support on problems relating to mental health outside normal working hours. It is run by South West London & St George's Mental Health NHS Trust for users of their services. |
Home Treatment Teams provide 24 hour support at home as an alternative to inpatient admission for people who would otherwise be in hospital. The teams can be contacted through the Crisis Line.
Out of hours these teams manage emergency mental health hospital admissions. This means that staff and referrers, such as duty doctors and GP's, must seek an opinion from the local home treatment team to ensure that all other alternatives to hospital admission are explored in the same way as would normally happen within usual working hours.
Visit the page about the team on the website for SW London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust.
