Horton Ward, Male Only, offers an admission and assessment service for people with extremes of challenging behaviour with a diagnosis of functional mental illness or personality disorders.
The service has 16 beds and is for males 18+ who require intensive rehabilitation.
We have an excellent reputation for being able to meet complex mental health and physical need of our service user population - in the case of physical needs we do this by having an enhanced General Practitioner contract with our local GP service. This includes a visit from a GP once a week and a visit from a clinical nurse specialist twice a week. We also employ our own physical health nurses who look after the physical wellbeing of all our patients.
The unit offers a very large communal lounge/dining area and low stimulus areas plus a large kitchen area where patients can make drinks and meals under staff supervision.
There are adequate toilets, bathrooms and shower facilities for the patient population, with bedrooms offering ensuite facilities.
The unit has an enclosed 'anti-climb' fenced-off garden area with patio as well as a dedicated smoking area for patients (although we do encourage all our patients where possible to stop smoking).
