About the service

Our purpose built 16-bedded male older people’s medium secure ward at Ridgeway, Roseberry Park, Middlesbrough was the first of its kind in the NHS.

It specialises in the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of older men with complex mental health needs, offering both short and longer term care.

The physical health requirements of this population is accommodated via a dedicated on-site GP led healthcare centre.


Referrals to the new facility are accepted from the Criminal Justice System, from High Secure Services and from services of similar or lesser security on the basis of need.  For more information contact:
