Future plans to develop our Secure Forensic Services

Summary of our proposed plans:

Woodhaven (Calmore)

Woodhaven (currently a low secure hospital for adults with a learning disability) will be redesigned to become an adolescent low secure hospital.

This will provide up to 14 beds primarily for young people from the south of the country.

The interim low secure ward, currently located in Bluebird House (also in Calmore on the Tatchbury Mount site), will transfer over to the new low secure hospital when it is ready.

New low secure forensic residential unit for patients with a learning disability (Calmore)

To accommodate the patients currently being supported at Woodhaven, we plan to build a brand new bespoke 10 bedded low secure forensic residential unit on the main Tatchbury Mount site.

To make use of current resources this replaces Rufus Lodge, currently a unused clinical building onsite.

Please find a full briefing of our proposed plans attached.
