Phillips Services recently finished working on the new low secure mental health unit at Glanrhyd Hospital, Bridgend.
The unit is home to patients detained under the Mental Health Act for a range of challenging behaviours, including self neglect, self harm and aggression. As part of their recovery, patients need specialist inpatient support in a unit which, whilst maintaining their independence, has some security provisions.
The unit, which in total cost £16.4 million, replaced out of date multi-bed wards at Cefn Coed and Glanrhyd Hospitals. It also provides accommodation for ABMU patients who previously needed to travel to England to be treated at a low secure unit rather than a mental health hospital.
In the new unit are 28 en-suite bedrooms as well as communal dining and sitting rooms, a gym, outdoor activity areas and private gardens.
The unit is purpose designed to address all aspects of mental health, physical health, educational and social behaviour related issues. Working with staff and their families, patients will have a say in their care, helping them receive the rehabilitation they need to return to the community.
