    Cygnet Wallace Hospital is a detached purpose-built building, which enables people to receive bespoke, person-centred support to move through a full recovery pathway. The service is split into multiple areas supporting people with different levels of need. This creates a care pathway within Cygnet Wallace Hospital from more acute intensive support towards residential-based support, and finally transitional studio flats to prepare people for moving on. There are a number of good sized living areas, including lounges, dining areas and life skills kitchens, where individuals can develop their skills, as well as a garden to enjoy outdoor activities.
