Park Villa Independent Hospital

28th April 2016
Grading Explained: Good

Park Villa was a community-based hospital providing rehabilitation and recovery for up to 11 women aged between 18 and 65 years, with complex and enduring mental health needs.

Park Villa accepted patients diagnosed with mental illnesses including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and borderline personality disorder. The hospital also accepted patients with challenging behaviours, including self-harm and complex needs. The patient profile included patients with treatment-resistant psychoses and dissociative identity disorders.

In June 2015, ownership was transferred to Partnerships In Care, and the transition changes were still on going at the time of the inspection. There was major refurbishment taking place, with all bedrooms being redecorated and fittings changed.

The hospital had a registered manager and a nominated individual.

Park Villa was registered for assessment or medical treatment for persons detained under the Mental Health Act 1983, diagnostic and screening procedures and treatment of disease, disorder or injury.

We have inspected Park Villa twice before, with the last inspection taking place in November 2013, the hospital meeting the required standards.
