Pre-admission information – Early on in a young person’s admission, ideally beforehand, we try to do a home visit. This enables us to see the YP at home, and start to get to know them and their parents/carers as a family before the YP comes into hospital. This also enables us to have a deeper understanding of the YP’s likes and dislikes and generally to be able to chat about things from home.
