Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital

Lentegeur Hospital (LGH), situated in the heart of Mitchells Plain on the Cape Flats, provides a wide variety of services to the areas it drains, which include all patients from the largely uninsured populations of the Khayelitsha- Eastern and Klipfontein-Mitchells Plain substructures of the Cape Metropolitan District. It also has a large rural drainage area.

With 722 inpatient beds, Lentegeur Hospital is the largest of the four level 2 hospitals providing Mental Health services for the Western Cape and has a comprehensive clinical service offering via the four clinical Functional Business Units (FBU) of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Forensic Psychiatry, Intellectual Disability Services and General Adult Psychiatry. All of these services have both inpatient and ambulatory components.

Through its 2 District Psychiatrists and designated members of the various multi-disciplinary teams involved in the admissions components of the clinical services, a healthy, vibrant and dynamic relationship is maintained with the level 1 District Health Services facilities in the substructures that refer patients to Lentegeur Hospital. This relationship includes the aspects of outreach and support and the important capacity-building of teams and staff of the various level 1 facilities in the LGH drainage areas.
