Universal Crisis Team – Northumberland and North Tyneside
The Universal Crisis Team is a team of experienced mental health staff, which includes nurses, social workers, psychiatrists, non-medical prescribers and pharmacy staff. We offer assessment and home treatment for people experiencing a mental health crisis, as an alternative to hospital admission. The team operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week. However, the crisis team does not provide an ‘emergency’ service such as a 999 response.
