We pride ourselves on providing a homely yet safe environment. We meet the physical requirements of a low secure hospital but have tailored our service to reflect a fun and relaxing atmosphere. We recognise that the prospect of being detained in a low secure hospital can be daunting and the impact of this can be great, our relational security enables us to minimise risks posed by young people to themselves and other people in an age appropriate and sensitive way.
The ethos of the ward is not driven by the physical security – whilst all the required checks are carried out to ensure this is maintained, the unique aspect of our service is found in the delivery of care.
Unlike many other secure units which have a number of rules and set requirements for all service users to follow, we treat every individual as unique, recognising that each person will be able to achieve different things at different times.
