There have been some changes taking place this week to our mental health services for older people in York. This is in preparation for the opening of our new hospital Foss Park, located on Haxby Road in York.
On Tuesday (6 August) we completed the ward merger of Acomb Garth, an organic male inpatient ward and Meadowfields, which was previously an organic female inpatient ward.
Over the last few weeks building work has been carried out at Meadowfields to accommodate the merger, creating an 18 bed mixed sex organic unit. There will be 10 male beds and eight female older person inpatient beds at Meadowfields.
Acomb Garth will no longer provide mental health inpatient services for older people. However, other services will continue to run from the site.
