20th anniversary celebrations for Cygnet Hospital Blackheath

On Thursday 22nd March a special lunch was held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Cygnet Hospital Blackheath.

In addition to a buffet and music there was also a very impressive anniversary cake, which had been specially made for the occasion by Mori, a colleague from Cygnet Lodge Lewisham.

The lunch was well attended by service users and staff, including some team members who have moved on to other roles within Cygnet and who came back to Blackheath especially for the occasion.

“Having joined Blackheath in January 1998 it has been great to not only progress my own career at the hospital but also to see Cygnet grow and expand to become one of the leading independent mental health service providers in the UK”Paul Nash, Security Supervisor

One notable feature of the celebrations was the number of staff who have been working at the hospital since the very beginning. One photo captured five staff who between them have worked at the hospital for an incredible 97 years!

“Happy 20 years to Cygnet Hospital Blackheath. Thank you to all staff for your continued hard work, it never goes unnoticed.”Rebecca Pye, Hospital Manager

The celebration was originally planned by the hospital’s Staff Representation Group and particular thanks go to Tanya Hayward, Contracts and Compliance Co-Ordinator and Donna Stock, Ward Clerk for their efforts in making the celebrations such a success.

Well done to all the team at Blackheath old and new.
