Greenways is our Learning Disability inpatient unit in Macclesfield, specialising in assessment and treatment for adults with learning disabilities.
Our carer pledge
‘We welcome carers onto our wards and embrace the vital contribution they make to achieving the best possible outcomes for patients. This is key to our person-centred approach.’
The staff at Greenways encourage daytime and evening activities to fit in with individual patient choice and needs. The activity coordinator takes the lead in planning activities. There are gardens and patio areas which are used in the summer months both for activities and for relaxing.
Patients are supported to make use of local facilities in and around Macclesfield.
Food and drink at Greenways Learning Disabilities Unit

All meals offer a wide choice of food and include healthy options. Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the day. Special diets and cultural/ethnic requirements can be catered for. These can be discussed with staff when patients are admitted.
