Cygnet Hospital Beckton
Cygnet Hospital Beckton is a smoke free gender specific hospital for women with complex mental health needs. We accept emergency and planned, pre-assessed admissions. We provide a multi-disciplinary approach, to help service users return home as quickly as possible.
Please be advised that our telephone systems are being upgraded on Saturday 21st October. As a result between 8am-8pm this may have an impact on the ability to transfer calls to the wards. An alternative method to pass on messages will be put in place.

Situated in the East End of London, the hospital has four different specialist wards including mental health with learning disability, personality disorder, PICU and low secure.

The overall ambience of the hospital is welcoming. The team take great pride in providing the best possible therapeutic environment in conjunction with the service users.

Our aim is to support individual service user recovery and integration back into the community, as quickly as possible. We have a multi-disciplinary team of specialists and offer a very broad range of therapies.

“I have had a most wonderful 8 months on Bewick ward. The staff are really nice, caring and supportive. I was involved in my care throughout. I was involved in all decisions and plans about me and was able to even write my own care plans and part of my CPA reports.” Service user

All of our bedrooms are en-suite; we also have an enclosed garden, plus several balcony areas, that are accessible 24 hours a day. Other facilities include a fully equipped, air-conditioned gym, two occupational therapy kitchens and telephone conference facilities.

Starting from 9th October 2017 Newham Council are implementing parking restrictions on the estate surrounding the hospital. Parking restrictions are in force between 10am-2pm Monday-Friday. This will have a huge parking implication for visitors as staff will be double parking in the car park meaning there will be nowhere for visitors to park. Any visitors to the hospital during the above mentioned times are advised to travel by public transport.
