Buttercup Ward – Tier 4 Adolescent Low Secure incl. Disordered Eating (female)

Buttercup Ward at Cygnet Hospital Bury is our new 8 bed low secure service for females who may have associated disordered eating and who may require naso-gastric (NG) tube feeding. The service can support individuals aged between 13 and 18 years old and offers a defined treatment pathway from admission, through to intervention and discharge.

The service can positively support females who may need a longer stay in an inpatient setting within a low secure environment. It offers a care and treatment pathway for individuals who may have complex mental health issues and whose needs and risks are such they need to be supported in this environment.

The service focuses on working with the girls to understand their mental health and their risks and support their recovery, enabling them to be successfully discharged to a less restrictive environment and to reduce the possibility of relapse and likelihood of requiring a secure service in the future.
