Bronte Ward – Women’s Low Secure

Gender: Female

Age: 18+

Beds: 15

Bronte Ward is our 15 bed female low secure service, offering assessment, recovery-based treatment and rehabilitation for women who have ongoing and challenging mental health problems and may have a dual diagnosis.

Women admitted to Bronte Ward may have a history of involvement in the criminal justice system and exhibit risk behaviours such as aggression or self-harm. We are able to support women with a secondary diagnosis of personality disorder.

The aim of our secure services is to support individuals to transition towards independent living, or the least restrictive environment. The teams on our secure wards monitor, manage and reduce risk, whilst balancing therapy and security and preparing service users to lead full and independent lives. Care planning is collaborative and person-centred and is designed to promote recovery.

Bronte Ward benefits from our regional network of step-down mental health rehabilitation and specialist services, enabling local care pathways for women to remain close to home and in the least restrictive environment.

The hospital is conveniently located just off the M62, in a quiet suburb of Bradford, with strong links to the local community.
