Blossom Ward – Acute Service for Women

Gender: Female

Age: 18+

Beds: 15

Blossom Ward is Cygnet Hospital Bierley’s 15 bed acute mental health service for women. The service provides a safe and stabilising environment for individuals who are experiencing an acute episode of mental illness and require an emergency admission. The service is now open and accepting referrals.

The ethos of this service is about assessing and treating service users in the least restrictive environment and planning for discharge in a robust and timely fashion. With a focus on stabilisation, we will support service users to manage their mental health, reinforce daily living skills and prepare for independent life back in the community.

The Blossom Ward team will work closely and collaboratively with service users, their families and the referrer to provide a seamless pathway from referral to discharge. Our approach is recovery focused and supported by a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team, contributing to shorter lengths of stay.

“From the moment I got to the hospital I felt supported and cared for, staff put my racing mind at ease and were able to make me smile even at my lowest point.” – former service user
