As well as the main hospital building, the Monkwearmouth Hospital site is made up of smaller wards and clinics too, including the new purpose-built Cleadon ward for older people with mental health difficulties.
Monkwearmouth Hospital provides a range of clinical services which include:
- Adult Services
- Learning Disability Services
- Older People’s Continuing Care Services
- Adult Rehabilitation Services
The hospital is also home to the Sunderland Psychological Wellbeing Service. This is a city-wide team that provides quick access to assessment and treatment for people with common, low to moderate mental health problems.
The Sunderland Psychological Wellbeing Service is delivered in partnership between Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, Sunderland Counselling Service and Washington MIND. Interventions are offered from a range of community venues across Sunderland including Washington MIND, Sunderland Counselling Services, Grange Park Clinic and GP practices.
In 2016 we opened the newly refurbished Cleadon Ward for older people with mental health difficulties. You can see a video about Cleadon’s opening on the Sunderland Echo website.
