The Huntercombe Hospital Norwich provides specialist, low secure services for child and adolesents and adults (both men and women) with mental health disorders. Positive engagement, respect and encouragement are fundamental aspects of the care provided. The core aim is to promote reovery and rehabilition where patients can enjoy a fuller quality of life and progress to less restrictive environments.
The Huntercombe Hospital Norwich is a low secure hospital in Buxton on the outskirts of Norwich, Norfolk. Set in a rural environment, but with easy access Norwich town centre, the Hospital provides a calm, therapeutic atmosphere with a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team.
Specific specialist low secure services are provided for both children and adolescents (CAMHS) and adults with mental health disorders within separate, segregated areas of the site. All services are provided within safe, therapeutic, purpose built environments and strictly comply with national standards for low secure services.
In addition, the Hospital also offers a Transitional service which bridges the gap between CAMHS and Adult Mental Health services enabling a smoother, more positive transition, particularly for those with complex needs where chronological age does not always indicate a readiness for transfer.
Using an evidence-based assessment and care model and risk reduction strategies, patients progress towards defined goals and milestones in order to move to less restrictive environments.
Patients are detained under the Mental Health Act.
Services are listed below, and please see individual flyers for download for further information.
Adult Mental Health services are provided for those with a range of mental health disorders, including challenging behaviour, personality disorder, co-morbid mental health disorders and complex needs, Some patients have forensic histories and present offending behaviour.
Over time, as patients enter a more 'future-focused' phase of treatment, our team use a range of empirically-validated risk assessment and relapse prevention techniques, to ensure that social integration or discharge is as safe and supported as possible.
