Recent political initiatives have increased the focus on providing clinical services for personality disordered individuals. Increased attention on those identified as having dangerous and severe personality disorder (DSPD) has led to the piloting of specialist services to trial new assessments and interventions for the DSPD group in both health and prison settings. This article outlines the development and provision of clinical services for those within The Peaks, the DSPD pilot service within Rampton Hospital. The Peaks, the first new-build health-based unit, aims to provide a comprehensive service specifically focused on addressing the full range of clinical and criminogenic needs of those within the DSPD group. The philosophical underpinnings of the unit and the practical components of the service provided are described.
