Forensic Mental Health Services


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.
