Hadrian Unit

Hadrian Unit is a 22 bedded high risk needs-led acute psychiatric ward for the whole of Cumbria, at Carleton Clinic in Carlisle. Hadrian is a needs led unit for individuals aged 18 years and over. The ward provides assessment, care and treatment for patients who present with a functional mental illness and who have a completed risk assessment screen prior to admission. Hadrian Unit works with adults who have a primary presentation of acute functional mental illness who require an inpatient episode, as it is not viable to provide or continue home treatment because they are:

  • At immediate and significant risk to others due to their mental health.
  • In circumstances where there is immediate risk of the breakdown in normal life or support network.
  • In circumstances where existing community service user is already receiving a higher level of input due to the level of deterioration of their mental state, or the increased level of risk
