Forensic Low Secure Inpatient Service

The Forensic Low Secure Inpatient Service is provided to adults who are detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 and who:

  • Have been identified as requiring hospital admission for assessment or treatment but do not require intensive care (the patient would usually be involved in criminal proceedings, requiring transfer from custodial settings)
  • Have been identified as requiring a rehabilitation programme within a low secure setting and are able to participate in such a programme

The service provides individualised care and evaluation of the patient’s progress and recovery. People are encouraged to be involved in their care planning and, where possible, the family is also involved.
