Gender: Female Beds: 58 Cygnet Hospital Beckton is rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) with inspectors praising staff for their ‘safe, person-centred care’. The hospital is a gender specific hospital for women with complex mental health needs. Situated in the East End of London, the hospital has four different specialist wards including mental health with learning disability, personality disorder and an acute admissions service. The CQC recognised that the specialist wards meet the needs of all service users – including those with a protected characteristic – saying staff helped service users with communication, advocacy and cultural and spiritual support. The regulator also highlighted that Hansa Ward, our mental health with learning disabilities service, demonstrated safe and person-centred care, complimenting staff for being aware of service users’ needs and engaging positively with each individual. We accept emergency and planned, pre-assessed admissions. 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. 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. The team at Cygnet Hospital Beckton very much value the role of family carers and they have a well-established Carers Network that meet regularly to share the latest hospital news and listen to feedback from the relatives and friends of those being cared for at the service. 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. Newham Council have implemented 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.
