A proportion of patients in secure forensic settings may need longer-term, potentially life long care. There are concerns that current forensic services may not be meeting patients' mental health, psychosocial and treatment needs. A multi-centre, NIHR funded study is currently investigating the characteristics and needs of long-stay patients in high and medium secure forensic-psychiatric care. In one of the study's work packages, forty qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with long-stay forensic patients -who have spent more than 10 years in a high secure or more than 5 years in a medium secure hospital - in order to explore their experiences of secure-care. In this presentation, we will talk through the qualitative stage of the study, providing a brief overview of the study's background, a description of the methodology and will then present and discuss the main findings.
