More information about Thornford Park

We provide comprehensive personalised assessment and treatment programmes for males with mental illness/complex care needs as well as those with personality disorder within our Medium & Low Secure services. Service users may have histories of offending and/or may have failed in previous placements.


The recovery focused model of care is bespoke to the individual needs of each service user. All care pathways are Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) led, with a holistic focus that ensures all aspects of the service users’ health are catered for, including their physical and mental health.


Our purpose built Psychiatric Intensive Care Units (PICU) are designed to provide treatment for patients in an acute psychiatric crisis who are at risk to themselves or others, they cannot be managed in an acute or high dependency unit and require an emergency admission.


This 24-hour service provides assessment, stabilisation, care and support within the least restrictive environment to patients before they move safely through their care pathway to a less acute/secure setting in conjunction with their Community Mental Health Teams.
