Secure services


Fromeside is an inpatient 80 bed medium secure unit in Bristol. It caters for both men and women suffering from mental illness who also have a criminal history or have risks and behaviours that would mean they are not able to be managed in mainstream adult mental health services.

Fromeside has an ethos of recovery embedded at its heart and a strong sense of service user and carer involvement. It has wards to cater for individuals who are acutely unwell and other wards for those nearer discharge.

It is able to offer both short term assessment and longer term care pathways and has a varied team of professionals offering a wide range of therapeutic activities and care, ranging from doctors and nurses, psychology, social work, occupational therapy, arts psychotherapies and adult education.

When service users are ready to move on to discharge in the community there is a team of community forensic nurses able to work alongside community teams to support this.
