Event description
Designing outstanding mental health services in South and East Staffordshire

About this Event

On 12th February 2019, a fire destroyed the west wing of the George Bryan Centre. At the time of the fire, the patients in the west wing were transferred to St George’s Hospital, Stafford.

The west wing was a 20 bed mixed sex 24 hour in–patient assessment, care and treatment ward for people who are in an acute state of mental illness. The average length of stay in the wing was 21 days.

The fire damaged wing has now been demolished and the building made safe and secure.

The East Wing of the George Bryan Centre was an assessment unit for people aged over 65, mostly with dementia. This was not damaged by the fire.

With the West Wing empty, it made a safe response to medical and psychiatric emergencies on the east wing very difficult and the decision was taken to temporarily close this wing.

With safe temporary arrangements in place, Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust would like to design outstanding permanent solutions for the two services:

• 24 hour in–patient assessment, care and treatment for people who are in an acute state of mental illness (working age adults, mixed sex).

• older person’s assessment service (over 65).

Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust would like to involve

• people who have used the George Bryan Centre in the last two years

• family members and/or carers of people who have used the George Bryan Centre in the last two years

• those who live in East Staffordshire Borough, Lichfield District and Tamworth Borough who have been admitted to St George’s Hospital, Stafford during the same time period

• family members and/or carers of the people above
