Shannon Clinic celebrates 10th Anniversary

22/04/2015

Shannon Clinic is the regional medium secure unit for Northern Ireland and provides 34 medium secure beds for adults with mental illness who require treatment in medium secure conditions.

Before Shannon opened in April 2005 there was no specialist inpatient forensic service in NI and forensic patients were treated in psychiatric intensive care units, in prison and in Carstairs in Scotland. A totally new inpatient forensic service was created at Shannon Clinic and this is linked to our community forensic services.

During the last ten years Shannon Clinic has built a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team to look after the health and care needs of our often challenging and complex client group. The team in Shannon are committed to supporting patients’ recovery by working in a person centred way and encouraging innovative ways of working.
