Welcome to

The Woodmill

The Woodmill is an 18-bed rehabilitation service for women with complex emotional and mental health needs who may have a secondary diagnosis of autism and/or mild learning disability and/or disordered eating.

For more information about The Woodmill

The 18-bed unit creates a pathway for patients to step down through their recovery. Ivy is a 6 bed stabilisation area and Rose is a 12-bed rehabilitation area, with the option to flex within the 12 bed area to a four bed section that can create a further step down with a separate entrance and garden for those patients that are progressing well and are preparing for discharge to the community.


The aim of the service is to support women to improve their self-worth, build a better quality of life for themselves and to equip them with the skills needed for community living and increased independence.
