We provide inpatient support if you are a female over 18 who requires the relational, procedural or environmental security that our low secure service provides.
Our referrals are taken from medium secure units, Ministry of Justice, National Offender Management Service, other wards within the Trust and sometimes further afield.
We provide a 24 hour service, seven days a week.
You can be admitted into our ward for a few months or more. We work closely with you to determine the best treatment based on risk reduction and assessment while you are here and we review this regularly.
Depending on why you are with us, we offer talking therapies, group sessions or other forms of treatment. We have activities on the ward that might be appropriate including a gym and arts and crafts sessions.
