The hospital have 2 wards. Ward 1 is A specialist 22-bedded male service set within apartment style sub-areas across a single story ward. This service is for individuals who require a period of comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation, to demonstrate progress in a step-down unit ahead of eventual discharge.
This service is also able to support those complex males that not only have a diagnosed mental illness but that also present with an undiagnosed or early onset memory related condition. The patients are supported to cater for themselves, take care of housekeeping and manage their own personal finances, gaining greater overall independence. The apartment style sub-areas can also be used by patients who are especially challenging, have significant personal care needs and require a low stimulus environment. We aim to offer a bespoke environment that can be flexed dependent upon the patient we are supporting, at any one point in time.

The gentlemen are admitted from a range of settings, which include those from placement breakdowns (either at their own home or a care environment), from acute psychiatric wards, or from prison settings. This ward offers assessment and treatment through to end of life care
