Cygnet Newham House opening in Summer 2020

Cygnet Newham House, our brand new neuropsychiatric care and treatment facility in Middlesbrough for women will be opening in Summer 2020. The service will be Cygnet Health Care’s first female neuropsychiatric service and will comprise of 12 hospital beds and 8 transitional care beds. Referrals are now being taken.

The hospital will provide a clinically led evidence based neuropsychiatric pathway. The service will cater for women affected by acquired brain injuries (ABI) or functional neurological disorders. It will provide a safe and secure place to aid recovery as well as offering those diagnosed with a progressive neurological disease like Huntington’s Disease, a longer term placement to support and help manage the progression of their symptoms.

Our focus is to create a therapeutic rich environment which engages service users and offers them the opportunity to maximise their independence. Each of the 12 bedrooms include an en-suite bathroom to support service users privacy.

A resource intensive neuropsychiatry interdisciplinary team will contain the following team members:
