Rampton Hospital

Rampton Hospital

Rampton Hospital is one of only three high secure hospitals in the country providing a comprehensive range of highly specialised services to adult patients who experience a mental health problem, personality disorder or learning disability combined with a history of offending behaviour.

The hospital is host to a number of national high secure services including the national high secure service for women, deaf service and the national learning disability service.

The services within the hospital provide a range of treatment pathways for men with a diagnosis of learning disability and mental health problems and women with complex needs including enduring psychosis, trauma, personality disorder, offending behaviour and self-harm. A range of psychological, occupational, educational and vocational approaches will be available to support men and women through their recovery.

Our aim is to engage patients in a comprehensive assessment process and to support them as they progress through an individualised care package which is focussed on both providing care and treatment relating to the individual’s mental disorder and also addressing their offending behaviour.
