On Wednesday 30th August we held a grand opening event at Cygnet Maple House, our new 16-bed highly specialised service for women with personality disorder and complex needs.

Located in East Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, Cygnet Maple House will provide assessment, treatment and rehabilitation in a therapeutic setting. The aim of the service will be to prepare individuals in our care either for transfer to an environment of lesser security, or for a life in the community.

On the day we were delighted to welcome staff, commissioners and members of the local community who were all given a tour of the facilities.

The hospital was officially opened in a ribbon cutting ceremony by Cllr Debbie Mason, the Mayor of Rushcliffe, who said: “I’ve been really so impressed with what I’ve seen. The decor, the relaxing rooms, the bedrooms, the colours, the flowers. It doesn’t feel at all like a hospital, it feels like a pleasant home.”

You can view the short opening ceremony on the video below.

Ricky Holland, Operations Director, said: “I was recently asked what I’m most pleased with in relation to Cygnet Maple House and it has to be how the setting will help service users on their journey of recovery. The interior is so well thought out and the grounds are beautiful.

“It was great to welcome the Mayor of Rushcliffe to officially open this service and we were really pleased that a number of neighbours took the time to walk round the service.”
