Skylark is an 11 bed ward accommodating adult females aged 65 and over, and is a new offering to those who live or have strong family or carer connections to Preston, South Ribble and West Lancashire, meaning they can be closer to home and their loved ones while they are receiving treatment.

The ward offers 24 hour around the clock patient focussed care for females with a functional mental health condition.

Access is through referrals from community mental health teams or urgent care.
