Each ward has its own community lounge, dining room and quiet room as well as access to its own secure garden. Designated external smoking areas are provided.

Safety and security is paramount within this envioronment and the building specification has been designed to meet the requirements of the National Minimum Standards for Low Secure Hospitals while retaining a more homely style of environment.
