    Abstract

    In the UK, mentally ill offenders can be assessed and given treatment and rehabilitation in a secure health care setting rather than in a correctional facility. Beds in such health care facilities are limited and evidence suggests that only the most serious offenders, such as those who have committed a homicide, are given priority. This paper examines the role of the Regional Secure Unit, a National Health Service provision, in the assessment and treatment of these offenders. A number of issues facing the multidisciplinary team are raised. A case study is presented to illustrate some of these points.
