South Hampton – Specialist PICU Service for Men

Gender: Male

Age: 18+

Beds: 12

South Hampton Ward is our new 12 bed male PICU service that accepts emergency and crisis admissions. Referrals will come to us from all areas, including acute and prison services. The service is now open and accepting referrals.

The aim of South Hampton Ward is to provide a short, rapid intervention to help service users regain a sense of control and
order in their lives, so they can move to a less restrictive care setting or return home.

The service will provide expert, intensive, short-term, individualised care for men detained under the Mental Health Act. Service users will present with increased risks that require them to be assessed and treated in a PICU environment.
