Bromley Road is a rehabilitation service for men and women with enduring mental health issues and complex needs. We accept service users who have a forensic history and those who are detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 (amended 2007).
More information about Bromley Road
Staff work together with service users and in partnership with referrers, families, carers and relevant agencies to achieve meaningful degrees of recovery. They prepare individuals and their care networks to maintain progress following discharge, or move to a step down facility.
Service users are supported by a full Multidisciplinary Team, Specialist Nurses and Support Workers. The focus at Bromley Road is to deliver positive support and risk reduction strategies, as well as providing opportunities for social inclusion and building skills for independent living.
The hospital is made up of two separate buildings. Jasmine House is the smaller of the two environments and is a female only, recovery focused service. It provides service users with the confidence and knowledge to manage their mental health and wellbeing in a dedicated all female environment. The focus is on relapse prevention and building the resilience and skills required to live safely in a community facing setting.
The larger building is a mixed gender service which is often the first step taken along the recovery pathway for many of those we support. There is a large communal living room and garden where people can socialise. Since January 2020, an additional three en-suite bedrooms were created on the top floor, offering more independence to service users as they prepare for discharge into the community.
“The team at Bromley Road have provided fantastic care and treatment for my patient. The communication has helped tremendously when planning for his discharge and he has been in his new placement in the community for four months. The Bromley Road team have played a huge role in this being possible.”

Staff work alongside service users, supporting them in their therapy programmes, building coping strategies and increasing their life skills. The aim at Bromley Road is to keep the length of stay to a minimum by planning discharge at the point of admission. Communication with families and valued support networks are encouraged by an experienced and values led staff team.
