The purpose of this research was two‐fold: first, to compare staff and patient perceptions of two new wards in a medium‐secure unit with perceptions obtained previously for a unit that has since closed, and second, to compare staff and patient perceptions of the new ward with their ideal ward environment. The results obtained from patients indicated that there were differences between perceptions of the new treatment unit and the former treatment unit. The results obtained from patients also indicated that there was a difference between perceptions of the new treatment unit and the ideal ward environment. Results obtained from staff could not be analysed because of a low response rate.
