  10. Chaffinch Ward (Bethlem Royal Hospital)

    This is a specialist service, available to people from across the UK.

    GPs, consultants, health professionals, referrers, commissioners and members of the public can find comprehensive information about this national service here: http://www.national.slam.nhs.uk/services/adult-services/forensic/

    Overview
    The purpose of our service is to ensure that mentally disordered offenders are assessed and treated effectively, in the least restrictive environment. We aim to manage the risk, reduce further offending and support recovery throughout the person's stay.

    Our service is designed to support people on a pathway to recovery through a series of carefully managed stages. Each of the ward areas are associated with a specific stage, so that those people who have responded well to treatment and are close to being discharged will be cared for in a different area than those who are acutely unwell, and at the beginning of their journey. Where our admissions and intensive care ward offers enhanced physical and procedural security, our pre-discharge unit offers a high level of independence with a lower level of security, increased access to community programmes, and community outreach services fostering the development of living skills, before moving to independent settings in the community. We also offer time limited inpatient stays and community assessments.

    Our service complies with the national standards set out in the Department of Health Best Practice Guidance: Specification for Adult Medium Secure Services (July 2007).

    Waddon Ward
    Waddon Ward is a Forensic Intensive Psychological Treatment Service (FIPTS). We are a medium secure forensic service.
    We provide assessment, treatment and care for male offenders, aged 18-65, who have personality disorders and who may be a risk to themselves and others.
    This is a national pilot programme and is available for people from Prison, high secure or medium secure services whose original borough of residence is within the M25.

    Our treatment programme includes group-work and one to one therapy sessions. We help people to reduce their aggressive and anti-social behaviour and to improve their relationships. We support people in their development at work, and in education, and help them to live more independently in their communities. We admit people for three to four month assessments before treatment, which typically lasts between one and two years.
