Poster from the Trent Study Day 2019Introduction: The Arnold Lodge Admissions Cohort: Reconviction and Intervening Treatment (ALACRITy) study examined the characteristics and outcomes of a cohort of 909 first admissions to Arnold Lodge Medium Securre Unit (MSU) between July 1983 and June 2003. The purpose and function of MSU services has evolced since they were first established in the 1980s. As one of the first such services to be established, the case register at Arnold Lodge provides useful information about the changes in characteristics of patients admitted over 30 years.
