Rosa Ward – Female PICU

Gender: Female

Age: 18+

Beds: 12

Rosa Ward, our new 12 bed female PICU, will accept emergency and crisis admissions. Referrals will come to us from all areas, including acute and prison services. Our aim is a short, rapid intervention to help individuals regain a sense of control and order in their lives, so they can move to a less restrictive care setting and ultimately return home. Rosa Ward will be opening in Summer 2024.

Rosa Ward will provide expert, intensive, short-term, individualised care for women detained under the Mental Health Act.

Individuals will present with increased risks that require them to be assessed and treated in an intensive care environment.
