Our mission is to combine the skills of our experienced multidisciplinary teams with a commitment to providing high quality, cost effective services without compromising on quality of care.
We adopt a positive and pro-active approach to care which recognises the changing needs of each individual; we are committed to observing “least restrictive practices” and will consistently seek to move individuals through their care pathway towards greater independence, as soon as it is safe to do so.
Our models of care focuses on enablement/re-enablement, positive risk-taking, therapeutic optimism, relapse prevention, personalisation, enhancing quality of life, fostering confidence and self-esteem and using creative and flexible approaches to engagement.
Our hospitals provide a structured environment for individuals who present with a diverse range of complex needs and behaviour that is likely to challenge
We recognise the importance of creating an environment that promotes rehabilitation and recovery.
Our purpose built hospitals are spacious, modern, well equipped and are situated within the community.
Our hospitals have 3 ward classifications:-
enhanced locked rehabilitation and
Our enhanced and locked rehabilitation services are suitable for individuals detained under the Mental Health Act (MHA), subject to a Deprivation of Liberty Safeguarding (DoLS) or are willing to receive treatment informally. Our low secure service is funded by NHS England where all patients are subject to detention under the MHA.
Our extensive in-house multidisciplinary teams work collaboratively to develop bespoke care plans centred around the needs, challenges and aspirations of each individual. We use recognised clinical outcome measures to monitor and evidence progress.
Our services are suitable for individuals who have a primary diagnosis of Learning Disability/and or Autism, Mental Illness, or Neurocognitive Disorders who may also:-
Be treatment resistant or fail to engage in therapy
Exhibit self-injurious behaviour or experience suicidal ideation
Are medically stable but have chronic physical health problems
Have additional/multiple secondary diagnosis, for example personality disorder
Have experienced a series of failed attempts at being placed in the community
Have a forensic history including substance misuse
A broad range of treatment programmes are available such as SOTP, substance misuse, anxiety management and anger management (not exhaustive). Our MDTs also use psychotherapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mentalisation-based Therapy (MBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) as required.
Patients are risk assessed to establish whether they are able to access the community with or without support, however regardless of their legal status, we believe they should benefit from local utilities and enjoy a range of social, recreational and occupational opportunities.
All of our wards have a large functional kitchen where (once risk assessed) patients can prepare their own meals and snacks in order to develop and maintain their level of independence.
We believe community integration is pre requisite to the success of rehabilitation and recovery, therefore; we work hard to offer a variety of internal and external meaningful occupational and social activities, some of which are listed below:-
