"Rivington unit (picu)"

About: Leigh Infirmary Mh Oupatients Clinic / Rivington Unit (PICU)

I highly recommend the Rivington unit, I have entered many a psychiatric unit and never received as much help and psychological /physical support I am so grateful too the whole team that work there they don't just give. You medication they actually care about you and I was made very relaxed and comfortable and well listened too its not a scary place as people make out so if you do find yourself admitted too there under the mha or voluntary dont be afraid to ask for any help you find you may need as if they can't help they will find someone who can thanks for helping me/picking me up when I was at rock bottom and pointing me in the right direction.

It's good to know that you were so happy with the care that you received and that this was of such help in what must have been a very difficult time for you.
