IST Crisis Team

The Trust operates a 24 hour urgent mental health assessment hub in Bedford

The Crisis Resolution / Home Treatment (CRHT) teams work with a group of patients, who, without this support, would need to be admitted to hospital, or who cannot be discharged from hospital without intensive support. The service enables patients who are in crisis, and not able to function at their normal level, to be supported in their own homes.

Additional support

Florence Ball, Bedford Health Village, 3 Kimbolton Road, Bedford, MK40 2NX
Tele: 01234 315691

The hubs provide direct telephone or walk-in support for anyone who feels they cannot cope and should be used instead of A&E for mental health crisis help.
