Community Services are available as part of an ongoing treatment program or as an alternative to hospitalisation. The service can assist in early discharge and reduce the need for re-hospitalisation. Close liaison by the Community Team with the treating doctor can result in a quicker response if a patient's mental state deteriorates, allowing for prompt invention. See website links for further information: EntryProcedures A referral from the treating psychiatrist is required for patients to receive Community Services. The Community Team provides regular follow up at home with the frequency of visits being on a needs basis. Phone counselling with a Community Team Member is also available within office hours, as well as extra intervention in time of crisis.
