Hope and Horizon Units

There are times when young people need to come into hospital and your community worker may speak with you about making a referral to the inpatient units at Pennine Care. We have two units, the Hope and the Horizon Units, which are situated within Fairfield Hospital in Bury and provide treatment and support, in a safe and caring environment, to young people aged between 13 and 18 years old who are suffering from a range of mental health difficulties.

Coming into hospital can sometimes feel like a scary thing especially if you have never been away from home before. Some young people may find it difficult living on a ward with others but it’s important to remember that everyone comes into hospital because of some kind of difficulty they’re experiencing and everyone has different needs. The staff will do all they can to help you settle in onto the ward and all the team are very friendly. If you find any part of being in hospital difficult, staff are always around for you to speak to.

To make you feel more at home during your stay, you're able to personalise your own modern and comfortable room, which comes with an en-suite bathroom and shower.

And as well as a number of living areas you'll share with the other young people on the ward, there are also communal games areas where you can relax, have fun and interact with the other young people on the unit.

There's also a unique outdoor tree house-style facility called the Woodland Retreat, with a decked area, barbeque and an allotment, which is a great place for you to take time to de-stress and enjoy some fresh air in a peaceful and relaxing environment.
