Cygnet Newham House celebrates 1st anniversary

Service users and staff at Cygnet Newham House, our neuropsychiatric care and treatment facility in Middlesbrough for women affected by acquired brain injuries (ABI) or functional neurological disorders, recently celebrated the hospital’s first anniversary.

The service users chose an animal theme for the event and the most popular activity on the day was a visit from a petting zoo. Service users and staff got to handle and view a variety of different animals including an owl, a snake, a giant snail, a rabbit and a tortoise. In addition there was also a buffet, music and games.

David Williams, Hospital Manager, said, “Reflecting on Cygnet Newham House’s first year. We are so proud as a team to have not only opened Cygnet’s first female neuropsychiatric service, but to successfully do so in the middle of the pandemic.

“Our service works hard every day to give a little bit of hope, to actively understand and enhance peoples skills to improve their quality of life. It has been my privilege to work with such an immensely talented set of people who have really gelled as a team over our first year. Watching them deliver proper person centred empathetic care, always reminds me of how important our work is.”
