Mental Health Inpatient Service

In September 2020 the Department of Health approved the Trust’s outline business case for the provision of a new 134 single-bedroom Mental Health Inpatient Service (MHIS) on the Antrim Hospital site.

It is anticipated that the £80m capital investment will deliver a new state-of-the art facility that will address the failures in the existing facilities including:

  • Lack of single bedrooms
  • Limited access to secure outdoor space
  • Inadequate provision for family visiting and dining
  • Outdated activity rooms with inadequate space to support structured therapeutic interventions or provide quiet areas for patients requiring space
  • Inadequate accommodation for staff changing, rest breaks and dining.
