Northwick Park Mental Health Unit in Harrow has two adult inpatient wards, Ferneley Ward and Eastlake Ward, which provide a safe and therapeutic environment for people over the age of 18 with acute mental health problems that cannot be adequately cared for in the community.
Inpatient wards are suitable for people who:
- Are over the age of 18.

- Have been detained under the Mental Health Act (including Community Treatment Order (CTO) recalls)
- Are vulnerable, at risk of harm to self or others as a result of an acute phase of a serious mental illness and cannot be safely supported in a community setting despite increased level of support, care and treatment.
- Have a dual diagnosis of learning disability, substance misuse etc. however the primary reason for inpatient care is an acute phase of a serious mental illness.
