Our advice for clinicians on the coronavirus is here.
If you are a member of the public looking for information and advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), including information about the COVID-19 vaccine, go to the NHS website. You can also find guidance and support on the GOV.UK website.
This guidance supersedes the DHSS Design Guidelines of July 1975 on “Regional Secure Units”. It should assist those planning new medium secure units or extensions to existing ones. It takes account of experience with existing units, including an evaluation commissioned by the Department of Health, which was undertaken in the summer of 1992 by a multi-disciplinary team.
