Extract

The North West Thames Regional Health Authority rationalised its in-patient service in 1989 to fund an eight-bedded five day unit for children under 13 years of age at Collingham Gardens. Riverside Health Authority's District Child Psychiatric Day Unit was also relocated to provide ten places primarily for pre-adolescent children. The unit is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of child workers, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, teachers, and a psychotherapist, social worker and speech therapist.
