A further three locked wards on site provide multidisciplinary care following a recovery model for 53 patients not requiring the physical security of a low secure unit but who do require enhanced relational and procedural security to provide a safe, locked and carefully managed care environment due to the potential risk posed to other people arising as a result of their mental disorder.
The Locked Recovery Service functions as a step down facility for the Low Secure Unit but may also admit patients directly from the community, where appropriate. Patients are almost always detained under the Mental Health Act 1983.
Cowdray Ward is an 8 bedded Initial Assessment and Intensive Care/ High Dependency ward. It is situated on the ground floor of the unit with its own secure garden area. Most patients admitted to the Locked Recovery Service from the community will be initially cared for on this ward before transfer to the other wards based on their individual needs.
This ward provides 15 beds for patients who suffer from mental illness and/or personality disorder. There is a focus on encouraging patients to maximise their functionality where possible. Patients may have evidence of mild cognitive impairments. It is situated on the first floor of the hospital.
