Brookfield Centre

Protecting our patients


We have had to take the difficult decision to close our inpatient wards and units to visitors.


We ask that you use alternative methods to keep in touch with your loved one as we take this measure to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and protect our patients and staff.


Please contact the ward or unit manager to discuss how you can best do this. Thank you for your co-operation.

 

We provide mental health support for adults with learning disabilities (LD).

Brookfield Centre is a 13 bed rehabilitation inpatient unit catering for men from the age of 18.

We specialise in the assessment and treatment of men with a learning disability whose offending behaviour and complex mental health needs require care in a low secure setting.

The ward consists of a multi-disciplinary team of health care assistants, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, speech and language therapist, doctors and consultants.

Patients are offered therapeutic activities by the occupational therapy team and their care is reviewed regularly during ward round and other multi-disciplinary team meetings.

Family Engagement and Liaison Lead

The Family Engagement and Liaison Lead (FELL) works specifically with the families and friends of someone who is being assessed or treated by forensic mental health and learning disability services. The Family Engagement and Liaison Lead will be able to offer you advice, support and information. Part of the role will be to meet up and give you time to talk about your own concerns and questions, throughout your relative or friends recovery. Click here for more details.

Arrangements for under 18’s to visit

Under 18’s are not allowed on the ward. If you have a child under the age of 18 who wishes to visit, please speak to a member of ward staff who will arrange a family room to be booked for your visit.

Items not allowed on the ward:

We have an extensive list of prohibited items that are not allowed on the ward. This list can be obtained from the ward.
