This hospital provides low secure and locked rehabilitation mental health care which is based on the Recovery Model.


Alvaston Ward is a low secure service which can support up to 16 women aged over 18. It is a highly specialised ward for women with a primary diagnosis of emotionally unstable personality disorder. The ward can support service users with the most complex needs and those for whom other services have not been successful.

Litchurch Ward provides low secure care and treatment for service users with a diagnosed mental illness, or dual diagnosis, that requires treatment and rehabilitation. Together with the Wyvern Unit, Litchurch Ward forms part of the integrated male care pathway at Cygnet Hospital Derby, enabling men who are admitted into a low secure setting to progress towards more community focused rehabilitation.

The Wyvern Unit supports men in a locked rehabilitation environment and is made up of two distinct areas – Wyvern Unit and Wyvern Court. The locked rehabilitation service provides a high level of support and uses a recovery focused model. With 19 beds in total, Wyvern Unit provides a step-down service for men who no longer need to be in a low secure environment, while Wyvern Court can provide a further step-down opportunity for up to three men ready to move back to the community.
