What Does Our Service Do?

Bosworth Ward is based at the Bradgate Mental Health Unit inpatient facility on the Glenfield Hospital site in Leicester. It is a 20 bedded male inpatient ward providing care for men with acute mental health problems. We aim to promote recovery and provide care sensitive to the needs of everyone.

How Does Our Service Work?

On admission our patients wiill be shown around the ward and introduced to the staff. They will then be allocated a named nurse and shown their sleeping area. The ward has written information to support the admission and a full assessment of the needs of the patient are made. A plan of care is put in place with the patient's involvement. This is reviewed regularly,  dependant on individual need. From the onset of the admission the team will be working with the patient towards recovery and subsequent discharge.

Care on Bosworth Ward is provied by a multi-disciplinary team of staff which includes medical, nursing and therapy staff to deliver  care and support. Our staff work across both day and night shifts.

Transfer between wards

Although you might have been admitted to one ward it might be necessary to move your care to a different ward, to accommodate new admissions. This would happen only after we have looked at all options. You will still receive the same high standard of care and your care plan and information will follow you.

Smoke-free Trust

The Trust became smoke free in October 2016 and promotes nicotine replacement therapy products that are free from our pharmacy. The ward will allow the use of disposable e-cigarettes that can be purchased from a vending machine within the unit. E-cigarettes may only be used within the ward gardens and not within the wards. We cannot recharge e-cigarettes and will only allow the use of the e-cigarette from the vending machine.
