Why Cygnet Alders Clinic?

A personality disorder clinic for females, Cygnet Alders offers the opportunity to gain extensive experience in a specialist service – as well as in-depth knowledge from our dedicated clinicians. And because we create flexible pathways tailored to each individual patient’s needs – you’ll also gain a breadth of experience working across different approaches.

We’re a 20-bed clinic with a community feel and a track record of excellent patient outcomes. We often succeed where others have failed. Our three wards – one for each stage of the recovery pathway – offer a variety of patient care experience. This is especially rewarding for our team, because with just 20 patients to support, they can really get to know people and truly feel part of their journey to recovery.

There are also plenty of development opportunities – with ongoing professional support from colleagues, the chance to take part in regional forums and gain valuable experience at our other sites in the South West.

The wards you’ll be working on…

You’ll love the variety and strong local links

Located central to Gloucester, Alders Clinic has great transport links, making it easily accessible for the people who work here. It also benefits from a thriving local community and busy city centre – where patients are encouraged to take part in sports, college, activities and volunteering. Our team enjoys the variety this offers as we support those in our care to take advantage of the local amenities to build their skills and confidence.

There’s plenty to enjoy in Gloucester, including the cathedral, animal sanctuary and Gloucester Quays outlet. And there’s a thriving community hub close to the clinic, with a number of projects that patients have the opportunity to get involved in.

You’ll enjoy flexibility and a culture of trust

We understand that people have commitments outside of work, so we’re flexible with shifts and respectful of home lives. Our staff are flexible too – and willing to adapt their approach to find solutions in a fast-paced environment where things can quickly change.

Working in this way requires a high level of trust. Trust is intrinsic to what we do – and is felt throughout the clinic. We trust our people. And our colleagues trust each other. We all have each other’s backs to ensure we overcome challenges together and deliver an excellent service that helps transform people’s lives.

You’ll benefit from the support and resources of a large organisation

There’s a warm, community environment at Cygnet Alders – and a family feel to the overall organisation. At the same time, it’s large enough to provide a wealth of support, training and resources that enable all our people to feel happy doing an excellent job.

Our teams also benefit from the insights and knowledge offered by our ‘experts by experience’. These are patients who have left our services – and are employed to help out in a number of different ways. Working alongside them and understanding their perspective offers our teams the opportunity to deepen their knowledge, enrich their skills and continually improve what we do to provide outstanding care.
