Early Intervention in Psychosis Team Bromley

You may be referred to this team if you are between 16 and 35 years old, if this is the first time you have become unwell and if your illness is of a psychotic nature.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.

My grandson, who is in care, and even after a recommendation by the triage nurse to be referred to the "early onset of psychosis team" you have stated that there is no evidence of mental illness!!!!!! I emailed your place at Orpington and have not even had the courtesy of a reply. It seems to me that unless the person confirms to either being on prescribed drugs (which he refuses) or being sectioned you don't want to know. You are a disgrace to your profession. You tell me that someone talking to imaginary people; looking over his shoulder all the time and grinning and laughing; not wanting to hold a conversation; telling me my neighbours are out to kill me, does not have a problem. This has been going on for a couple of months and is getting worse. HE IS NOT ON ILLEGAL DRUGS!!!!!!

You should all be ashamed of yourselves for not helping 1. The care home 2. the social worker and 3. me and his family

Dear Tatiana,

Thank you for your comment and sorry you feel your grandson has not received the service you feel he requires. Unfortunately the Early Intervention Team has not received your email.

Our team consultant has been in contact with your grandson’s GP to gain more information and the GP has confirmed this is the second episode rather than first episode of psychosis therefore the Early Intervention Team would not be the appropriate service.

I understand that your grandson has been offered an appointment with the ADAPT team this week.

We strive to ensure that clients are supported by the most appropriate team to meet there needs.

Kind regards,
Leanne Kalemaj
Early Intervention Team Manager

My daughter was diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder in 2017 following a number of hospital admissions. She was moved to the ICMT at Yeoman House last year and given a case worker. Her medication was changed in January 2018 and since then she has become increasingly unwell - before this her medication worked well in managing her illness.
My daughter is now very unwell but still neither she nor I have had our calls returned - the case worker is absolutely useless and hasn't done anything at all to support my daughter and her family - not with the monthly pill boxes, the house move or with benefits or even staying in touch. The situation is becoming very difficult - my daughter needs her medication sorted out and a case worker that is prepared to do their job properly - this needs to be done urgently. Yeoman house has failed us before - please don't do it again.

Dear Louise

I am sorry to hear that your daughter is unwell and that she has not had the support required.

Could you please contact me on 020 8301 9422 to discuss further.

Kind regards

Dr Abimbola Fadipe
Clinical Director, Bromley Directorate
