Close links are being developed with the universities and medical school and there is a thriving Sussex wide training scheme in psychiatry.
The Forensic Healthcare Service has extensive experience of providing forensic mental health and prison healthcare across Sussex and we use that experience to continuously improve and develop our services. These include Low Secure Services (Chichester, West Sussex and Hellingly East Sussex), Medium Secure Services (Hellingly, East Sussex), Police and Court Liaison and Diversion Services across Sussex, Primary care and mental health at HMP Lewes and HMP Ford and our ever developing community forensic outreach services. Our secure services were rated as ‘Good’ during the Trust CQC inspection in 2016 with ‘outstanding’ for effectiveness and the Trust was rated as 'Good' with 'Outstanding' for care in 2017.
