There’s no doubt that working in mental health can be hugely rewarding. Here at Sutton Manor, run by Partnerships in Care, it’s a particularly fulfilling experience.

Services at Suttons Manor focus on the treatment and rehabilitation of mentally disordered men with mental illness and/or personality disorder often referred to our care by the criminal justice system. Care is provided over two wards - one low secure for the 18 - 49 age group and the other dedicated to those aged 50 and over, offering our new specialist low secure forensic older adults service. Our older age service provides care and treatment tailored to the individual by our experienced multidisciplinary team with expertise in age-appropriate physical and mental healthcare. Our aim is to move the resident along a specific care pathway that will lead to maximum recovery, improved quality of life and appropriate referral or discharge when appropriate. The older adult ward is a lower stimulus area for those who would be more vulnerable to others in a mainstream service. The hospital focuses on using Meaningful Activity to support all our patients to progress with their personal goals and move into less restrictive environments.
