Keeping our service users, their carers and family, and staff safe during the Coronavirus outbreak is our number one priority.
We have made changes to the way our services are delivered to ensure you are safe when receiving support. We've also introduced new services to specifically support anyone struggling during the lockdown.
24 hour mental health telephone lines
We offer two 24/7 telephone lines for urgent mental health support, advice and triage. These are for people of all ages and provide access to urgent mental health support.
- Call 0114 226 3636 if you require urgent mental health support.
- Call 0114 226 3797 if you work for an agency such as the police, ambulance service, local authority or other similar organisation and require urgent mental health support.
These lines are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You do not need a referral to call them.
If you require serious or life-threatening immediate emergency mental or physical health assistance, call 999.
New 'Coping with COVID' course
We have launched a new course that is specially designed to help support anyone who is feeling stressed, anxious or worried during lockdown.
The course is open to anyone living or working in Sheffield and will be held online so you can take part from the safety of home.
To find out more about the course visit iaptsheffield.shsc.nhs.uk or call 0114 226 4380.
Visiting our inpatient wards
We have taken the difficult decision to close all of our inpatient wards to visitors. The decision isn't one that has been take lightly, however, it has been made with safety of service users, staff and visitors as our utmost priority.
That means that visitors will no longer be accepted at the following sites:
- Birch Avenue
- Buckwood View
- Burbage Ward
- Dovedale Ward
- Endcliffe Ward
- Firshill Rise
- Forest Close
- Forest Lodge
- Grenoside Grange (G1)
- Maple Ward
- Stanage Ward
- Woodland View
The only exceptions for visiting at the moment would be for service users receiving palliative or end of life care, or where a visit in-person is considered absolutely essential as part of discharge planning. If you meet these criteria please contact the ward in the first instance to discuss practical details.
