Solid and reliable access control systems ensuring that only authorized members of staff are allowed to enter certain restricted areas are a vital component for any high-security hospital site, such as the one that has recently opened in Crowthorne, Berkshire.

The new £250m high-security Broadmoor Hospital, treating men detained under the Mental Health Act, has opened in December, a news report has been able to reveal.

West London NHS Trust said the site “epitomises hope and recovery” and would help it provide care “in an environment fit for the 21st Century”.

The new Broadmoor Hospital includes three new ward buildings, gardens and a central building where patients can take part in activities.

It will be able to provide treatment for up to 210 men with mental illness and personality disorders who represent a high degree of risk to themselves and others. Patients are admitted from prison, court or medium secure hospitals. Some have not committed an offence, but need specialised care in a high-security setting to aid their recovery.
