Hadley Ward - Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit Newtown (PICU)

Hadley PICU building

This is a 9 bed psychiatric intensive care unit based in Worcester. The Unit provides care and support for patients who have been identified as being at a higher risk of harm to themselves or others.

The ethos of the ward is to provide robust assessment and treatment for patients experiencing a period of acute illness, presenting with increased risks that do not allow safe or therapeutic engagement in a less acute setting. PICU’s role is to provide a responsive multi-disciplinary team approach to respond intensively and clinically to patient’s risks and needs.

Car Parking

Vistors will need to park in the Worcestershire Royal Hospital car park. There is both a 'pay on foot' and a 'pay and display' car park charging system. The 'pay on foot' payment system means that you will be given a ticket at the barrier as you enter the car park. When you leave the hospital please use one of the pay machines to pay the charge and have the ticket validated. Pay machines are situated inside the main entrance, inside A&E and in each main car park. 

The pay and display machines are located at road side spaces and smaller car parking areas that are not barrier controlled.  The pay and display pay stations only accept the following coins: £1, 50p, 20p and 10p. Please obtain a ticket before you leave your car and ensure that it is clearly displayed on you dash board or window.

Please note that these machines do not give change.

We have introduced a 'one hour' car park rate as a response to patients and visitors who told us that their visits are often for no longer than an hour and they would like the option of a reduced fee.

  • Up to one hour: £2.50
  • 1-2 hours: £3.70
  • 2-4 hours: £4.50
  • 4-6 hours: £6.00
  • 6-24 hours: £7.50

Parking for Disabled Patients and Visitors

There are designated spaces outside the main entrance, on the access road leading to A&E. Parking is free for Blue Badge holders.
