Priory has a nationwide network of acute support for the NHS, offering 24 hours a day, 7 days a week assistance in times of emergencies, to support individuals whenever needed. Our safe, secure and contained hospitals offer supportive and caring environments for a wide range of service users.

We focus on family and carer interaction, and collaboration with community teams to support successful discharge plans and a smooth transition back into existing community services, or to an individual’s home where possible.

Who do we support?

The Priory supports positive progression towards recovery for the following service users:

  • Individuals with a range of mental health conditions
  • Those showing risk of violence and aggression
  • Those at risk of suicide
  • Individuals with varying levels of risk
  • Individuals from other services

Our approach to Acute services

  • We work closely with referring Trusts to achieve minimum lengths of stay, and are able to provide an extension to NHS care pathways during times of fluctuating demand
  • Priory works collaboratively with discharge teams to ensure a smooth transition back into existing community services, or to an individual’s home where possible. This includes the opportunity to attend ward rounds and discuss service user care with the MDT
  • We have the capability across our network to utilise our breadth of services to support a full care pathway, providing continuity of care and the minimum disruption to the treatment programme
  • Access to DBT skills-coaching; either on the ward or via telephone consultation
  • Consultation Meeting where the therapists receive supervision and consultation on their clinical work
