Kemple View’s highly specialist clinicians have extensive experience in the assessment and treatment of men with complex psychiatric needs.
Many of our patients have previously been in high, medium or low security. We aim to work collaboratively with our patients enabling them to take increasing responsibility for managing their own risks leading to a controlled and graded discharge. Where a patient requires greatest support we offer contextual risk management, enhancing compliance and aim to improve their quality of life. We serve the patient, carers and visitors.
Kemple View also has a dedicated and purpose-built ward offering PiC's newly launched Low Secure Forensic Specialist Older Age service for patients over the age of 50.
A higher profile is given to this patient group's physical healthcare, risk reduction and where required, mobility and daily living aids.
