High Security Psychiatric Services (Arrangements for Safety and Security) Directions

Closed 23 Aug 2018

Opened 31 May 2018

Overview

This is a public consultation on the safety and security arrangements for the three high security psychiatric hospitals in England (Ashworth, Broadmoor and Rampton).

It aims to provide both individuals and organisations with the opportunity to give their views and opinions on the proposed changes to the High Security Psychiatric Services (Arrangements for Safety and Security) Directions and associated guidance.

The results of the consultation will be used to update the current set of Directions.

In particular views are welcomed on:

  • Whether the changes will have a positive or negative impact on patients’ daily activities and routines;
  • Whether the changes will have a positive or negative impact on staff working within the hospital;
  • Whether the changes maintain the same standards of safety and security.

Please only answer those questions you want to or those which are relevant to you. You can save your responses and return to complete the survey at any time. The survey will be open for 12 weeks, in alignment with Cabinet Office guidance, and will close at noon on 23 August 2018.


You will be asked a series of questions and required to input your responses either by clicking the corresponding button or by typing in responses where this is more appropriate. This should take around 15 minutes depending on your answers.


Your responses to the consultation are confidential – this means that we will not use your name or other personal details.
