Cygnet Health Care are preparing for two regional launch events to celebrate the implementation of their network of Recovery Colleges. Recovery Colleges offer educational courses about mental health and recovery which are designed to increase knowledge and skills and promote self-management.
In August 2016 we were delighted to announce the appointment of Rafik 'Raf' Hazmaizia as Cygnet's first Expert by Experience. In the following article Raf gives an overview of how his first few months have gone, the projects he has been involved in and the people he has met at Cygnet.
We are pleased to announce that Cygnet Hospital Beckton have won a RAID Award for excellence in working with challenging behaviour. These annual awards were established by the Association for Psychological Therapies to keep people ‘enthused’ about working with challenging behaviour.
Cygnet Hospital Blackheath recently hosted their fourth Family, Friends and Carers (FF&C) event. The aim of these events is to get to know the family members, carers and friends of our service users and to provide them with support and information they will find useful.
More than 120 delegates gathered at the Royal College of GPs earlier this month for the latest Cygnet Health Care free educational event 'Enhancing Patient Experience - Professionals, Patients and Power: A Paradigm Shift in Healthcare Delivery.'
On the 10th November, 18 Cygnet Chefs converged on Harborne Catering School in Birmingham as part of their annual Chef Development Day, an event that also saw the official launch of Cygnet's new Food and Drink Strategy.
