The redevelopment saw the replacement of some of the existing buildings with new and refurbished accommodation to provide an Admission and Assessment Unit, a Forensic Unit, a Challenging Behaviour Unit, a Continual Mental Illness Unit and a Daycare Centre.
Phase 2 of the works included a new £5.7 million 9 Bed Challenging Behaviour Unit and a new 24 bed containing Mental Illness Unit.
The development Masterplan created the conditions for a more informal hospital with single storey buildings roofed in slate and standing seam zinc, brick and render walls and hardwood windows and doors. Internally the spaces are characterised by abundant daylight, environmentally friendly finishes and a sympathetic colour scheme. Each building has patient accessible gardens where supervision can be relaxed without compromising patient safety.
