Across all of our medium and low secure services, service users are supported by a dedicated multi-disciplinary team who work with people to assess their needs and create a discharge pathway to the community.

Treatment is based on the principles of recovery including psychological therapies, occupational therapy, social therapy, physical healthcare and medication. Risk assessment tools are used and a clinical formulation is developed to inform the management plans for each patient.
