Cygnet Paddocks is our new specialist Neuropsychiatric rehabilitation service for men. The service will provide a dedicated care pathway for men affected by acquired brain injury or neurological conditions, where behaviours that challenge are the overarching impairment to recovery and rehabilitation. The service is due to open in July 2024.

The individually designed wards will replicate the well-established rehabilitation and treatment pathways already successfully offered by Cygnet in other Neuropsychiatric Rehabilitation services; facilitating a clear and distinctive care and treatment pathway led by an all-encompassing in-house clinical and medical team.

We ensure person-centred outcomes are maximised through inter-disciplinary working, whilst keeping the individual at the heart of their discharge planning.

This service will be able to accept individuals using a variety of legal frameworks, including those under the Mental Health Act.

Cygnet Paddocks is located in Widnes, in the North West. The local area has many parks and nature reserves, and the service is well connected by public transport to nearby supermarkets, cafés and leisure activities.
