Chamberlain Ward – Specialist PICU Service for Men

Gender: Male

Age: 18+

Beds: 12

Chamberlain Ward is our 12 bed male PICU service at Cygnet Hospital Stevenage and will accept emergency and crisis admissions. Referrals will come to us from all areas, including acute and prison services. Our aim is a short, rapid intervention to help service users regain a sense of control and order in their lives, so they can move to a less restrictive care setting and ultimately return home.
