Orchid Ward will provide increased levels of staffing and a robust environment, offering a safe option for service users whose risk is too high for an open acute ward, such as those with risks of absconsion, and who may present as a risk to self or others.The new service is opening in response to increasing pressure on NHS emergency admission beds. The 14-bed service will complement the hospital’s existing male acute service for detained patients and will expand Cygnet’s national network of emergency admission services to eleven.
