Ely Adult Mental Health Services, part of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, have moved to a brand new home at the Coveney Centre, in the Princes of Wales Hospital, after the closure of the old Croylands site.

The Coveney Centre received its first patients on Friday 18th January, and there has been a very positive reaction to the new facilities from staff and patients. Team Manager Christine Robertson said:

“The Coveney Centre is an excellent facility for the work we do with patients. It has appropriately sized rooms for our one-to-one sessions, and is fully wheelchair accessible. Being based at the Princess of Wales means that Ely’s mental health services are better integrated into the wider healthcare community, as well as being more convenient and easily accessible for patients.”

The move to the Coveney Centre was well planned in order to ensure there was no disruption to patient’s treatment, with the new facility ready to receive patients a few days after the closure of Croylands. The services being provided by Ely Adult Mental Health Services include psychological therapy sessions, psychiatric treatment, mental health assessments, and the service runs a once-a-month carers group.
