Kedleston Unit, Kingsway Hospital

Kedleston Unit - Kingsway Site.JPGOur team at the Kedleston Unit provides a gender-specific low-secure service for males.

The team delivers intensive, comprehensive, multidisciplinary treatments and care for patients who demonstrate disturbed behaviour in the context of a serious mental disorder and must be in a secure setting.

The service is commissioned by IMPACT east midlands, our provider collaborative who we work closely with. Referrals come from regional medium-secure units, prisons, Ministry of Justice recalls, Psychiatric Intensive Care Units and acute adult wards. There are 20 beds at the Kedleston Unit: Curzon ward is an eight-bedded assessment ward and Scarsdale ward is a 12-bedded rehabilitation ward.

Referral criteria

  •     Males 18 years and above
  •     Must be suffering from a mental disorder, and detained under the MHA 1983 (not section 2)
  •     Must require treatment in a specialist low-secure service
