Some bed availability
At Huntercombe Hospital Roehampton we offer a safe and secure care environment for men and women whose mental health has rapidly declined or worsened.
We’re an intensive care psychiatric hospital for people with multiple conditions, complex health needs and challenging behaviour, such as acute psychotic episode, drug-induced psychosis, schizophrenia, risky behaviours and many more.
People come to our south-west London centre from across the country because they have been detained under the Mental Health Act. We can also help people who are under a Community Treatment Order (CTO) that has been revoked.
Following a referral, we’ll make a complete assessment of a patient’s need and the referrer will know about it within an hour or less.
We have a 24/7 telephone referral service, round-the-clock medical and nursing teams and have designated units for men and women.
We welcome referrals from all over the country.

This is commonly abbreviated to "PICU". It is a service for adults who are going through a sudden mental health crisis, and who pose a high level of risk to themselves or to other people. These patients usually need immediate inpatient treatment in a safe setting. Patients are detained under the Mental Health Act.
We work with these patients to draw up a treatment plan aimed at getting the individual back to life in the outside world.
We have three individual wards here at Roehampton. Two wards are for women, one ward for men. Each of our three wards has its own clinical team led by a Consultant Psychiatrist.
Our service is for men and women who are experiencing:
An unexplained psychotic episode
Drug induced psychoses
Severe depression with suicide risk
An increase in risky behaviours such as absconding, suicide attempts, arson and violence
A big heartfelt thank you to Dr Ramadani. You are an excellent doctor and a very caring and lovely person. Our daughter is doing really well and slowly getting back to her old self again. Thanks.
Dr Shaqile Ahmad and his team were brilliant with my daughter. I am impressed with my daughter's progress and confidence. Roehampton has positively transformed her life.
Care is good. If my son was admitted tomorrow at Huntercombe Hospital Roehampton, I would be happy.
Every patient we look after is treated as an individual. We take a collaborative approach, involving patients, their families, commissioners and other professionals to quickly manage the crisis that has led to the patient coming into our care.
CQC Inspection Update: The "requires improvement" rating was issued following an inspection in November 2015. Subsequent focused inspections were carried out in October 2016 and February 2017 and acknowledge that we are making progress in addressing concerns raised.
