Service Brief: Radernie Low Secure Unit
Radernie Low Secure Unit, Stratheden Hospital is aiming to commission a grant funded service that primarily involves in-reach support from a third sector/voluntary sector service to support patients to achieve their longer-term rehabilitation needs. and their subsequent transfer of care to community-based settings.
Patients within Radernie Ward would benefit greatly from increased 1:1 (Staff : Patient Ratio) and 2:1 support for structured social activities both within and outwith the clinical area, as this would greatly enhance community engagement. At present it is not possible to achieve the necessary levels of activity within Radernie Ward due to staffing numbers, recruitment factors and the day to day service-wide staffing challenges.
