Cygnet Sherwood House is a 30 bed specialist high dependency inpatient rehabilitation service for men dedicated to providing a high quality environment for promoting long-term recovery.

We believe that our programme of individual care and attention for our service users will contribute to their well-being and comfort, so that they will be able to go on to live in the wider community with appropriate support, guidance and assistance.

Dedicated clinical teams provide a multi-disciplinary input including occupational therapy, psychology, psychiatry and vocational training.

Service users are encouraged to exercise their right to be involved in planning their care. They are also encouraged to get involved in the social activities of the hospital and to pursue their own interests where this is appropriate within the hospital environment.

We are situated on the outskirts of Rainworth Village which boasts local amenities such as shops, doctor’s surgery, chemist, snooker club, post office, sports school, hairdressers and local bus route to the nearby town of Mansfield.

The setting provides ample opportunity for the people in our care to develop life skills as a prelude to their goal of independent or supported living in the community.
