Thornford Park


Thornford Park Hospital is a large mental health complex in Berkshire UK, built on a former military airbase. With 140 beds covering psychiatric and forensic mental health needs, it has a mix of low and medium secure units, and houses some of the most challenging service user groups.

We were approached for a solution to the ensuite doors, where their fixed hinge doors with a sloping top were a known ligature risk. Following installation of doors in safer rooms across the site, and the PICU units, they have included the Softdoor as their standard specification for the ensuite door.
