Cygnet Raglan House

Raglan Road, Smethwick, West Midlands, B66 3ND

Cygnet Raglan House is a 25 bed high dependency inpatient rehabilitation hospital for women. The service is designed to provide an environment which promotes mental health recovery by focusing on space, personal privacy and dignity.

We are dedicated to understand, stabilise and break the traumatic cycles of relapse that can impact people’s lives. Our service has been designed with wellness in mind, providing a safe and comfortable environment that promotes efficient rehabilitation and recovery.

Our psychology and occupational therapy led interventions effectively tackle the challenges of mental health and alongside our clinical interventions we help women enhance their personal skills to rebuild their lives. Our care embraces a balanced approach to risk management and therapeutic optimism. Service users have access to a range of therapies and opportunities and care plans are individualised.

When the time is right, access to the local community is an essential step along the pathway to independence, for both leisure pursuits and for social training such as shopping and using public transport. External activities are tailored to individual needs and wishes.

Cygnet Raglan House is within walking distance to Smethwick Town Centre which is well placed to provide meaningful rehabilitation. It has libraries, community colleges, shops, a 24 hour Gym, 24 hour supermarkets and various places of worship. Birmingham City centre is approximately 15 minutes’ drive from the rehabilitation hospital.

At the local Community Action Project, our patients may participate in the pre-employment programme and use the library services. At the Ron Davies Centre and Sandwell College, they can study art, French, computers, yoga, sewing, nail art, skin care, make-up and much more.

Our membership of a local neighbourhood forum provides links to local businesses and voluntary organisations.
