ApproachRowanbank Clinic is a new mental health secure care facility on the Stobhill Hospital site. This healthcare facility aims to dramatically improve services for people with mental health problems who may pose a risk to others or have the potential to commit an offence because they are unwell. It provides specialist treatment and support in modern, purpose-built accommodation designed to meet the specific needs of patients and staff.
This healthcare facility comprises a series of T-shaped ward units clustered in a figure of eight necklace forming a medium secure area and a low secure area. The building itself forms a barrier to escape from the courtyards and to access from outside parties. All the patient occupied areas face inwardly to the courtyards and only staff areas or patient accompanied areas face externally.
In each T-shaped ward he Nurses Station is positioned centrally affording maximum observation over the Day Area and the Bed Area. All vehicular and pedestrian traffic is controlled via access through the Administration Block which is located centrally.
