About Cygnet Health Care

Since Cygnet Health Care was founded in 1988, we have built a business providing high value integrated services to individuals suffering from a wide range of psychiatric illnesses and disabilities. Over the years we have developed a wide range of services to address the specific needs of service users creating pathways to allow individuals to move towards their recovery.

In the current climate of economic restraint, Cygnet has worked closely with NHS commissioners to deliver excellent value for money. Cygnet are recognised as a specialist provider by the NHS across England and Wales. In a recent analysis by 2 NHS commissioning bodies Cygnet were rated first for value for a wide range of inpatient services. In addition we are 100% CQUIN compliant across all of our services.

Cygnet operates 17 centres with more than 730 beds. Two units are registered nursing homes providing long term and respite care for private fee-paying elderly residents.

We also run Detox 5, an opiate detoxification service with an abstinence and recovery focus. Working with partners in the NHS and the voluntary sector we deliver a small but important step towards a drug free lifestyle, by delivering a 5 day pain free opiate detoxification.

Company policy emphasises strong local clinical and administrative management. Each clinic has its own local management board comprising the hospital's most senior manager, the medical director, two executive directors from a main board, and a staff representative. Our corporate structure is deliberately low-key - a factor that also helps maintain the personal nature of Cygnet's patient services.
