On the 23rd March 2017, Huntercombe Hospital Stafford hosted an event to inform commissioners and referrers about changes to our Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)- our service for young people going through a sudden mental health crisis.
Wiz Magunda, Hospital Director, Alice Reeds, Hospital Services Manager and Samantha Bond, Commercial Director for the Huntercombe Group opened the event.
Our two consultants, Dr Shaheen Chaudhry and Dr Ramesh Billemane delivered presentations on Bipolar Affective Disorder and on Physical Health and Risk Management respectively.
During the day, our visitors had the opportunity to meet members of our team and to see first hand the changes we have made to our service during a guided tour of the PICU ward, Hartley. They also met one of our former patients and her family who kindly agreed to join us to share their experiences of our hospital.
