Our forensic mental health service provides accommodation, treatment and support for men and women who have been diagnosed with severe mental health problems and are considered to pose a risk to the public.  We have a number of secure inpatient settings, referred to as “forensic”.

What we do

We are the NHS provider of secure services for Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.  We provide a full range of inpatient services across this area, including:

  • two medium secure units
  • two low secure units
  • a secure unit for women
  • an open pre-discharge facility.

In addition to a full Forensic Community Mental Health Team, our outpatient care covers a range of psychological services, including anger management.

We provide mental health support to a range of prison settings, such as Bullingdon Prison, Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) Grendon and the Close Supervision Centre at HMP Woodhill.

Our service, and our reputation as a provider as well as a base for research and academic achievement, is growing fast with an ability to offer services to other NHS trusts across England.
