Cygnet Health Care has been providing a national network of high quality specialist mental health services for 30 years.

Cygnet Hospital Taunton provides 54 bedrooms across three distinct service lines which offer; acute care for men, acute care for older adults and learning disability services for men.

The Hospital is situated in a rural setting amongst Taunton farmland, within acres of peaceful fields. This quiet and tranquil environment offers great benefit to our service users who are able to walk in the expansive hospital grounds and take in the countryside scenery.

Swift Ward is a 15-bedded service that provides specialist support and expertise for older men and women experiencing an acute episode of mental illness with co-occurring physical health conditions or frailty. We are able to support those with a functional or organic mental health diagnosis, however we cannot accept individuals whose primary diagnosis is advanced dementia.

The aim of the ward is to provide a maximum treatment plan of three months and support an individual to return to their baseline level of functioning. We work with the individual, their care partners and other agencies to support discharge home or to alternative services, for example, residential or supported living. Although most of the individuals we support are over the age of 65, there is no lower age limit for our service.
