The Skelbrooke Ward is a psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) at the Doncaster Adult Mental Health Unit; providing specialised care for people experiencing acute mental ill health. In early 2020, the Skelbrooke Ward underwent a major refurbishment to modernise the environment and introduce new technology to work alongside clinical practices.
In our initial conversations with Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber (RDaSH) NHS FT, we understood that they were looking to move away from the traditional route they'd taken previously when refurbishing the existing ward. Our smart doorsets with full-door ligature alarm and integrated override lockset were able to provide just that.

Patient care and recovery were at the forefront of plans for the refurbishment of the Skelbrooke Ward. Our electronic integrated override locks allow patients to move freely between rooms where access is permitted; whilst the load release en-suite doors carefully consider privacy and dignity without compromising on safety.
The Junipers is the first of its kind in the south west of England. The purpose-built facility was designed to help patients recover which is why Devon Partnership NHS Trust chose to install our doorsets and locksets throughout. This includes our anti-barricade doorsets with electronic locksets and full-door ligature alarm, along with our en-suite doors.
Sowenna is a purpose-built child and adolescent mental health (CAMHS) unit, providing inpatient treatment for young people aged between 13 and 18 years. We worked with Ryder Architecture and the Trust to to select the right doors to balance patient and clinical needs and reduce risk.
Providing holistic support for older age patients with dementia, Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust needed a familiar environment that would help aid the recovery process. That's why they chose to install our Symphony doorsets and anti-ligature locksets and handles throughout.
Ribblemere is a purpose-built perinatal mother and baby unit (MBU) providing inpatient support for mothers experiencing acute mental ill health. Lancashire Care and Gilling Dod wanted to ensure the environment was recovery-led to allow mothers to build relationships with their babies. That's why those chose our electronic access control system.
