At Gryphon we understand the strains that the NHS is under, especially during peak seasons like Winter.
Keeping mental health patients safe while they get physical and mental health care in hospital can be difficult. We are fully aware of the strains that this can have on authorities, employees, and family members. In order alliviate these pressures, Gryphon can provide teams to provide calm, trained, and professional support, allowing medical or security personnel to focus on their essential responsibilities. Our team members completely understand the intricacies of providing compassionate and discrete care while also protecting and supporting medical staff, family and friends, and the patient themselves.
Our observation service is intended to relieve stress on ward staff and police officers, allowing them to focus on their core responsibilities.
Once a patient is admitted to hospital, Gryphon staff will remain with them to ensure their safety and comfort.
Patients of any age can use our observation service at Accident and Emergency Departments, Section 136 rooms, or whilst waiting for an assessment and admission.

To instil a sense of self-worth and pride in the children and young adults we work with, our fleet consists of prestigious vehicles of the greatest grade and quality.
Our transport supervisors and close protection officers are all highly skilled professionals who provide mentoring and coaching from the start of our transportation services, and as a result of this methodology, we avoid the use of caged vehicles to manage challenging, complex, or violent behaviour. Cages and restraints are only used as a last resort.
All our vehicles are covered by comprehensive insurance that protects the client, the employee, and the vehicle. All of our vehicles are equipped with advanced GPS systems, the most up-to-date security and locking systems, and current optional additions to assure the safety and comfort of both our drivers and our service users.
For the children and young people with whom we work, our compassionate and humanistic approach is yielding outstanding results!
