The Multi Skills Centre (MSC) arranges sessions for patients who do not have the ability or confidence to attend other activity areas in the hospital.
Patients who attend the MSC are more dependent than most others and require one to one work with staff to meet their individual activity based needs. The MSC supports individuals to gain confidence to attend off ward activities and has proved very successful in supporting long term improvements with a group of patients who are difficult to motivate.
The MSC works with disciplines from across the Hospital to support patients recovering from crisis to re-engage with off ward activity supported by staff.
MSC staff provides support and encouragement to patients to move onto other activity areas when appropriate and supports patients to return to the area in times of crisis or when they require additional support.
