C&I has won a Gold Award, from the Ministry of Defence, in recognition of our ‘forces-friendly’ initiatives in the workplace, and our commitment and support to our Armed Forces personnel, veterans and their families.
After 18 months of planning and co-designing our new inpatient facility, we are delighted to have been granted planning permission to build our new hospital in Highgate, opposite our existing Highgate Mental Health Centre.
Armed Forces Day is taking place on Saturday 27 June and is an opportunity to remember the men and women who make up the armed forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 0800 917 3333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
