Your room

Southampton Treatment Centre is pleased to confirm that we are compliant with the Government’s requirement to eliminate mixed-sex accommodation, except when it is in the patient’s overall best interest, or reflects their personal choice.

We have the necessary facilities, resources and culture to ensure that patients who are admitted to our centre will only share the room where they sleep with members of the same sex, and same sex toilets and bathrooms will be close to their bed area.
