LOCKED WARD SERVICE

There are 4 locked wards across the hospital site providing the least restrictive care for 53 patients with mental disorder who require a locked and carefully managed therapeutic environment due to the potential risk posed to other people. These wards can function as step down facilities for the Low Secure Unit on site; however the majority of patients are admitted directly from the community.

These wards care, mostly for patients detained under Parts II and III of the Mental Health Act 1983, a minority of patients are subject to Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 where appropriate.

COWDRAY WARD

Assessment and Intensive support

Cowdray Ward is an 8 bedded ward providing comprehensive MDT Assessment and Intensive support, care and treatment to patients who are typically severely mentally ill with disturbed and violent presentations. These patients have usually been unable to make health gains in other mental health care settings. With the benefit of the intensive level of support available on Cowdray Ward, patients become more settled and make progress with their individualised care plans, such that they can transfer to other wards on site to further maximise their health gains.

Cowdray Ward is situated on the ground floor of the Locked Ward Service and has multiple and separate therapeutic areas and de-escalation spaces, as well as access to two different secure garden areas. These special features facilitate the safe management of patients requiring such an intensive level of support.

PETWORTH WARD

Maximising Health with High Support

Petworth Ward is a 15 bedded ward which aims to Maximise Health with High Support for patients who suffer from ongoing severe and complex mental disorders. Patients also frequently present with milder though clinically significant forms of cognitive impairment. In spite of health gains and progress already made, patients typically require a high level of support from members of the MDT to maintain and to build on their health improvements. Petworth Ward is located on the first floor of the Locked Ward Service.

GOODWOOD WARD

Maximising Health with High Support

Goodwood Ward is a 12 bedded ward which aims to Maximise Health with High Support for patients who live with ongoing severe and complex mental disorders. In spite of health gains and progress already made, patients typically require a high level of support from the MDT to maintain and gain further health improvements. Patients on Goodwood Ward tend to be frailer and more cognitively impaired than their peers on Petworth Ward. Goodwood Ward, with its own garden, is situated within Park House Unit, also on the main hospital site.

PARK HOUSE WARD

High Support for Dementia

Park House Ward is an 18-bedded purpose-built unit providing High Support for Dementia. Typically patients on Park House Wards live with severe forms of dementia with significant neuropsychiatric symptoms and behaviours which challenge. Additionally they are likely to have co-morbid and ongoing serious physical health problems.

The risk profiles (including the risk of violence) of these patients are such that they could not be managed safely in mainstream dementia nursing homes, therefore,  hospital care provided by a skilled MDT is necessary. Park House Ward is a single level, ground floor unit with its own secure gardens.
