Patient Admissions and Emergency Psychiatry

You can receive immediate help in the Patient Admissions and Emergency Psychiatry department. The department is staffed 24 hours all year round and is also available without a prior appointment.

A team from different disciplines will welcome you in a friendly and open atmosphere. Alongside the medical and nursing specialists, social services are also available on-call to handle any acute social issues.

We handle your case together and support you in discussions or in organising an elective admission or an immediate clinic admission.
