Annesley House

Annesley House is a low secure and locked recovery and rehabilitation service for women aged 18 years or older with a primary condition of mental illness and personality disorder. We work with women who are stepping down from secure services, or stepping up from community or other inpatient rehabilitation care.

Our High Dependency Unit supports patients who are of high risk to themselves and need more intensive care than is required in a standard inpatient rehabilitation unit.

Annesley House comprises of:

  • Durham ward - a low secure continuing care ward for women
  • Cambridge ward - a high dependency ward for women
  • Oxford ward - a community facing inpatient rehabilitation ward for women

Our approach

Patients are offered a wide range of vocational and educational opportunities at this hospital and a varied timetable which includes their choice of therapeutic and meaningful activities to suit individual needs and interests.

The occupational therapy programmes focus on promoting independence in the community and the development of day-to-day living skills.

This includes:

  • Individual cooking practice
  • Budgeting
  • Creative writing
  • Breakfast club
  • Social club
  • Hobbies
  • Occupational Therapy drop-in group for patients who may wish to discuss any issues with their allocated Occupational Therapist.
  • Community dog walking
  • Vocational card craft
  • Relaxation
  • Aqua aerobics
  • Healthy living
  • Vocational knitting

Our team

Therapy and care is centred on the recovery model. Care Plans form the basis for the patient's subsequent care in the community and this is led by:

  • Psychologists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Nursing team
  • Social workers
  • Speech and Language Therapist

We believe the environment in which treatment takes place, is as important as the therapy itself. Annesley House provides:

  • On-site gym including fitness equipment
  • Library
  • Computer room
  • Salon
  • Gardens within secure grounds and outside
  • Tennis court
  • Rehabilitation kitchens on and off the wards
  • Multi-functional rooms for arts and crafts
  • Two therapy rooms
  • Access to the community local small towns with a good bus link
