The ward is suitable for people who are moving on from medium security placements and who have engaged in dangerous and/or chronic challenging behaviour and who may pose a continuing and ongoing risk to others or themselves. We can also support people who represent a persistent risk of absconding to avoid treatment, those who find it difficult to engage and those who have a dual or multiple diagnosis, which could include substance misuse and/or personality disorder.
Together with our Wyvern Unit and Wyvern Court, Litchurch Ward forms part of our integrated male care pathway at Cygnet Hospital Derby, enabling men who are admitted into a low secure setting to progress towards more community focused rehabilitation.
“The care team here are faultless… They are all very supportive when needed and dedicate their time to everyone… The environment is homely and comfortable.”Service user, Litchurch Ward
