The Retreat has been undertaking a period of great change. Our focus going forward is on the extension of our highly respected psychological assessment and therapy sercices and the development of innovative new interventions made possible by emerging technologies. We no longer mange inpatient services.
Our Older Adult units, George Jepson and Katherine Allen closed on 30 November 2018. We have safely supported the transition of all of the patients in our older adult services onto new settings and have received excellent feedback from patients, carers and commissioners about the planning and management of this process. As part of the transition plan, our staff visited patients in their new settings, both to provide support and to ensure that the new staff teams, involved in the care of the patients, have all the information they need to provide the best possible continuation of care.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the years and to our staff for consistently providing care of the highest quality.
Our Eating Disorders and Complex Trauma services have been acquired by Schoen Clinic (Newbridge Care Systems), a family-run German hospital group, and will continue to be delivered from our main hospital site in York.
We would like to wish Schoen every success for the future and to thank everyone for their support over the years. In particular, we would like to thank our staff for their continued dedication and professionalism.
