Tarnanthi Post Occupancy Review (Forensic Mental Health)

In February 2021 a review was commissioned to be undertaken on the Tarnathi Forensic Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at Glenside. The review was undertaken by Mr David McGrath to determine if the unit had delivered on the project and strategic expectations for the service.

The final report of the review was finalised in June 2021 and outlined eleven recommendations. These recommendations are in the areas of service model, planning for forensic mental health services, data collection and performance management and the potential for legislative change.

Subsequent to receiving the report a small group which included representatives from the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network and the Office of the Chief Psychiatrist met to develop a series of responses to the recommendations.

Work has commenced on the planning and development work required to implement the supported recommendations.
