Cygnet Newham House is our brand new Neuropsychiatric care and treatment facility for women, a first for Cygnet Health Care, comprising 12 hospital beds and 8 transitional care beds. This service provides users with a one care pathway, ensuring a smooth transition through their rehabilitation. Opening summer 2020 for women affected by acquired brain injuries (ABI) or functional neurological disorders. It is a safe and secure place to aid recovery as well as offering those diagnosed with a progressive neurological disease like Huntington’s Disease, a longer term placement to support and help manage the progression of their symptoms. The hospital is a modern, purpose built facility that has been designed specifically to provide a clinically led evidence based neuropsychiatric pathway for those individuals presenting with behaviours that challenge as a result of their ABI or neurological insult. Our focus is to create a therapeutic rich environment which engages our service users and offers them the opportunity to maximise their independence. Each of the 12 bedrooms include an en-suite bathroom to support service users privacy. We provide a resource intensive neuropsychiatry interdisciplinary team dedicated to the service users at Cygnet Newham House. Our person centred approach puts the individual at the centre of their treatment and discharge planning. The service offers a wide range of activities and facilities to promote independent function. Positive behaviour goals are focused on discharge planning to support service users to return to community living – either with support or independently. The 8 transitional beds sit within two separate bungalows, offering an on-site structured community reintegration pathway, overseen by the same clinical team as within the hospital setting.
