Southern Health is one of the largest Foundation Trusts in the UK, specialising in mental health, adult and child community health and learning disabilities.
Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust is excited to be providing a new, 14 bed, low secure hospital for children and adolescents with mental health needs. The new hospital will be located at Tatchbury Mount in Calmore, Southampton.
This new hospital will help to meet the national shortage of beds for young people with specialist mental health needs and will mean that patients living in the south of the country will be able to access treatment closer to home, preventing them and their families having to travel long distances to receive the care they need.
