Who is this service for?
Our service is for people with serious mental illness and/or personality disorder who need to receive their care in a medium secure environment.
Most of our patients have either committed a criminal offence, or have challenging behaviour. We admit patients from high secure hospitals, local psychiatric hospitals, prisons and the courts.
Get access to this service
You can only be admitted to Ravenswood House if you have been referred to our service. We accept referrals from consultant psychiatrists in mental health services.
We don’t accept referrals directly from primary care (such as your GP) - these referrals should be seen by a consultant psychiatrist first.
We also accept referrals from:
- Probation Service
- Prison Service
- Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangement (MAPPA) leads
- Social Services departments
We accept referrals from Hampshire, Dorset and Isle of Wight.
For more detailed information on how to access our services, please see our referral information pages.
