Tiffany Ward – Women’s Low Secure

Tiffany Ward supports women in a low secure environment, providing specialist assessment, treatment and, if needed, intensive rehabilitation. Programmes of support are designed to help people progress along their care pathway in a safe environment.

Our low secure services provide intensive rehabilitation designed to support people to move safely along their care pathway in a safe environment. There is a dynamic programme of therapy and activity, designed to support the transition between inpatient services and the community.

The aim of our secure services is to help people learn how to manage their mental health and reinforce their daily living skills, to prepare them for life in a community setting, or in the least restrictive environment possible.

All wards at Cygnet Hospital Stevenage work closely together to provide a seamless secure care pathway for men and women. Working closely with NHS case managers and commissioners, we are able to provide solutions for service users requiring step-down service options both on-site at Cygnet Hospital Stevenage and across our national network of rehabilitation and specialist services.
