Beech Unit is located in Torbay Hospital and provides assessment and treatment for older people with severe mental health needs, such as depression, anxiety and psychosis.
Our multi-disciplinary team consists of a consultant psychiatrist, nurses, an occupational therapist, social service professionals and psychologists. They are available to give treatment, care and advice and encourage
carers and relatives to be involved in this process.
The team also has close links with older people’s mental health teams and other health and social care providers in communities across South Devon.
You will be asked to bring in any current medication prescribed to you by your doctor.
