Broadmoor revamp plans approved

BROADMOOR, the Berkshire high security hospital deemed “not fit for purpose” by the regulator is to get an upgrade to facilities for patients and staff. Plans for a £298m revamp of the Hospital have been approved by the Department of Health.

The new 16-ward, 234-bed unit will be constructed within the existing grounds. The Department of Health is to invest in the Victorian site at the famous hospital, which dates back to 1860, replacing the old buildings with fit-for-purpose and secure facilities.

The investment follows the Commission for Health Improvement report back in 2003, which concluded that “the accommodation at Broadmoor Hospital is no longer fit for the delivery of modern mental health services”. Standards of care, which are currently good, are nonetheless increasing hard to deliver.

Broadmoor treats people with mental illness and personality disorders who represent a high degree of risk to themselves or to others. The money being invested into redeveloping the secure site is to be used to build new high quality secure accommodation buildings. Work is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
