STATE OF THE
ART FACILITIES

St Magnus Mental Health Hospital for Older Men provides specialist assessment, care, support, and treatment delivered by skilled and qualified members of – multidisciplinary care teams (MDTs). Our patients require and benefit from care delivered in a structured and controlled therapeutic environment either within our Low Secure Unit or in our Locked Ward Service based on the individual’s need for conditions of security as well as upholding the principles of the least restrictive hospital setting available.

SKILLED
MEDICAL TEAM

The hospital cares for patients aged 55 years and above with functional illness (e.g. schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder etc.). Cases often have co-morbid organic syndromes, personality disorders, as well as substance misuse disorders. We also provide care to patients aged 40 years and above with progressive organic illness (e.g. dementing illnesses of early onset, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease etc.). All patients are comprehensively assessed with respect to their suitability for treatment at the appropriate level of security prior to admission into our hospital services.

HIGHLY
REGARDED CARE

St. Magnus Mental Health Hospital for Older Men has capacity for 86 patients, 33 patients in the hospital’s Low Secure Unit and 53 patients in the hospital’s Locked Ward Service. The care, support, and treatment on every ward is delivered through an MDT model. the hospital has a strict pre-admission protocol that determines into which ward a patient may be admitted: patients are signposted into therapeutic ward environments and care pathways where the best possible multi-disciplinary health care and appropriate level of security can be provided for them.
