About Cygnet Health Care


Cygnet Health Care was established in 1988. Since then we have developed a wide range of services for individuals with mental health needs, autism and learning disabilities within the UK.

We have built a reputation for delivering pioneering services and outstanding outcomes for the people in our care.

Our expert and highly dedicated care team of 10 000 employees empower 2864 individuals across 150 services to consistently make a positive difference to their lives, through service-user focused care and rehabilitation.

We maintain a good relationship with our quality regulators and undergo regular inspections, with 83% of our services rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’. We also operate an internal system of quality care, treatment and positive outcomes.

Our Clinical Vision

Cygnet Health Care’s aim is to provide the highest quality care to our Patients and Residents at all times, regardless of where they are in their care pathway.

We are committed to providing the highest quality and most effective care possible.

We aim to achieve this through our highly trained and motivated staff working in partnership with Patients, Residents, their friends and relatives, our Commissioners, and Regulatory Bodies.

As a national care provider, with a network of professional and high quality services across England, we are able to offer solutions and work in partnership with the NHS, CCGs and local authorities to provide the services they need including emergency and planned admissions. Alongside this we are able to provide robust and quality data and CQUIN reporting.

Following the acquisition of CAS Behavioural Health (formerly known as Cambian Adult Services), by Universal Health Services Inc. (UHS) in December 2016, our nationwide network of specialist services has grown, and the services we offer are now aligned to 11 distinct service lines:

And as part of the UHS family of health care services, Cygnet Health Care continues to grow and evolve to meet the needs of service users and their families and carers and those who commission our services.
