Our services

We provide forensic healthcare services across Sussex, hospitals in East Sussex and West Sussex.

Our service provision also includes ‘Forensic Outreach and Liaison Services’ and the ‘Sussex Liaison and Diversion Service’, both of which provide community-based care and support our goal of reintegrating our service users back into their communities.

Our care

We work with people whose mental health needs are best managed within a secure environment. By offering a range of recovery focused interventions, underpinned by research, we support people to gain independence and have control and meaning in their lives.


Working in Forensic Healthcare Services

Forensic mental health is a unique and fascinating field which offers a range of career opportunities. The people who use our services require staff to build trusting and safe therapeutic relationships, which support their recovery through the secure pathway. To manage risks and provide evidence-based treatment requires our teams to be collaborative and patient-centred at all times.
