Services at Kewstoke

Facilities & Care

The hospital provides 57 inpatient beds within a low secure setting, including a male PICU within the same secure perimeter. All bedrooms are single, with en-suite bathrooms, and each of the four wards has its own garden or terrace. There is a fully equipped gym and activities suite.

Care Pathways

On the same site at the hospital is Cygnet Lodge Kewstoke, an intensive community rehabilitation service for women, which provides care for informal individuals as well as those who may be formally detained. The Lodge is separate from the main low secure service, and provides the next step in the care pathway from the low secure wards, or a step up from community placements which may have broken down.


Our multi-disciplinary team works across the whole hospital and makes use of a broad range of therapies, including CAT, CBT and DBT that are tailored to individual needs. We run a number of groups, such as a 'Hearing Voices Group', which many of our service users find useful as a way to share their experience.
