Mental Health Emergency Department – Updates

Many thanks to all those who referred patients and for the helpful feedback you have provided in relation to the recently established Mental Health ED diversion pathways.

 As expected, there were initial 'teething problems,' given the accelerated roll-out in response to the Covid 19 Pandemic.

 Many localities and partners are now considering how to maintain and build the pathway further, as we move out of the current situation.

In order to support this objective, we have now added the MH ED diversion localities to the destinations' function on the DSA MDT’s.

These are listed below, with some destinations already available. We hope that the additional locations will allow us to record the patients being conveyed to one of the alternate hubs for appropriate care.

Additional locations

  • Wedgwood MHU;
  • The Cavell Centre;
  • Calnwood Court;
  • Florence Ball House;
  • The Lakes;
  • Derwent Centre;
  • Broomfield Hosp MHED;
  • Southend Hosp MHED;
  • Lister Hosp MHED;
  • The Orchards ADTU;
  • Weavers Centre;
  • Chatterton House;

If you have utilised the pathway and have not yet taken the opportunity to provide your feedback to Duncan, please do so by emailing him at
