Physical Health Care Team at Langdon Hospital

The Secure Directorate of DPT is based at Langdon Hospital and provides a service that supports people who, as a consequence of their mental health needs, have had contact with the legal system and require a safe and secure environment that enables them to receive a wide range of treatments, therapies and care to assist in their recovery. We offer a unique service that follows a care pathway through assessment, medium secure, low secure and open units on the same campus.

I have worked at Langdon for over 30years as a Specialist Physiotherapist and am now very lucky to have built up an experienced MDT consisting of a GP, Physical Health Nurse, Health & Wellbeing Administrator, Dietitian, Pharmacy Team and Sports & Leisure Team, all working closely together as the Langdon Physical Health Care Team from a Health & Wellbeing Centre on the Langdon site.

We are passionate about improving physical health care for people with SMI and ensure they are listened to and are offered the interventions they require, in line with what would be expected for the general public.
