More information about The Spinney

Many of our patients are placed with us for a period of stabilisation after which they are able to step down in terms of security level.


Facilities include a fully equipped gymnasium, education room, art and pottery workshops, health and fitness suite, computer suites and swimming pool. The nationally recognised Education and Occupational Therapy department encourage patients to get involved in all forms of art, including music, photography and practical skills.


Staff at The Spinney have previously been recognised by the Association of Psychological Therapies (APT) for their ability to reinforce positive behaviour, prevention of challenging behaviour and successful interventions in a secure care setting.
