Ash ward is a 12-bed, low secure inpatient rehabilitation and recovery unit for male adults with mental health difficulties.
We provide skilled, supportive, person-centred care for people whose psychiatric condition requires treatment in conditions of low security. This means that to ensure the safety of patients, the unit is secure. However, access in and out of the unit will be assessed on a case-by-case basis during a patient’s rehabilitation.
The service is guided by recovery and rehabilitation principles to offer individuals care based on thorough assessment of clinical needs and risks.
Ash ward provides services to both Somerset and other Trusts through arrangement with the Ward Manager.
We recognise and appreciate the vital role that families and carers play in patient recovery, and we welcome input and contact from families throughout hospital admission.
We welcome visitors by prior arrangement. Please call 01278 454131 to arrange a visit.
