Ashworth Mersey Care

Visit Website

Ashworth Hospital is one of only three hospitals in the country providing services for patients who require treatment and care in conditions of high security. Our vision is to be a centre of excellence for high secure care, providing a recovery focused environment for patients and staff.

The majority of our patients come from the North West, West Midlands or Wales. Patients are admitted in a range of ways but all come because they present a grave danger to themselves and or other people. The majority come either come from prison, or through the court system or from a secure unit.

Care is provided by consultant led multi-disciplinary teams using the care programme approach. This ensures each patient has his own specialist team of professional staff to tailor make a treatment and care package.

The aim is to ensure the right treatment is provided at the appropriate time and that the length of time in Ashworth Hospital is kept to a minimum.
