We are proud winners of the Reducing Restrictive Practice, Quality Improvement Star Award in 2020 & the ‘Peoples choice’ award for Patient Safety in 2021. We aim to provide forward thinking services to people with a wide range of mental health needs, all of whom are detained under the Mental Health Act. Our emphasis is on providing the service user with safe, person-centred care and treatment to manage their complex and longer-term needs within a safe and secure environment.
