Cygnet Hospital Beckton opens new PICU for women

The Svanna Ward team

Svanna Ward, Cygnet Hospital Beckton’s brand new PICU for women is now open and accepting referrals. The 12 bed ward accepts emergency and crisis admissions from all service types.

The service aim is short, rapid interventions to help individuals to regain a sense of control and order in their lives, so they can move to a less restrictive care setting and, ultimately, return home.

With a focus on stabilisation, the Svanna Ward team will support women to manage their mental health, reinforce daily living skills and prepare for independent life back in the community.

The ward was opened earlier today with the official ribbon cutting performed by Peter Smith, Managing Director of Health Care (South) at Cygnet. Awa Bah, Clinical Manager at Cygnet Hospital Beckton said “We are very pleased to open this new PICU ward at Cygnet Hospital Beckton. We look forward to continuing to support even more women to progress along their recovery journey.”
