Community Forensic Service
We support adults, who have mental disorder and pose risks to others, in the community. Some have been discharged from prisons or secure hospitals. We also provide a ‘through-care’ service to patients who are currently in hospital with the aim of maintaining links and preparing them for life in the community.
Accessing our service
You will only be assessed by the service if you are referred by a professional.
Referrals come from:
- secure hospitals
- general mental health services
- independent sector hospitals
