Tarentfort Centre

The Tarentfort Centre is a 20 bedded rehabilitation inpatient unit catering for men from the age of 18. It is comprises of two clinical areas an acute and sub-acute learning disability forensic.

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.

Protecting our patients

When visiting any of our inpatient wards you must wash your hands, follow our 2m social distancing policy and wear a face covering  where required to do so.

Wards may insist upon other individual arrangements to help protect you during your visit. We advise for all visitors to contact the ward staff ahead of their visit to check for further guidance.

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.
