How our service can help you
The Willow Ward is an acute assessment ward with 18 beds, providing assessment and treatment for adults aged 65 and over, suffering with mental health problems such as depression, acute anxiety, psychosis or bipolar disorder requiring hospital treatment. We support people and their carers with mental and physical health needs within a multidisciplinary setting and provide therapeutic activities to help recovery.
Care and treatment is provided by a range of professionals including nurses, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, physiotherapy and speech and language therapists. You will be invited to talk regularly with the ward team about how you are doing and your care plan.
All of our bedrooms have en-suite facilities and during your stay we encourage you to bring a few personal items with you to help you feel at home and aid your recovery. While you are in hospital you can expect to be treated with care and compassion and we will respect your personal needs. We will maintain your privacy and dignity at all times and ensure your stay with us is as comfortable as possible.

A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
At Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, we value the often life-long support carers provide and recognise them as equal care partners. We want to offer as much guidance and reassurance as possible, to help you in your caring role.
