Burton Park

Priory Burton Park is an inpatient rehabilitation service, which provides specialist neurobehavioural rehabilitation for men and women with an acquired brain injury (ABI), including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and stroke or a progressive neurological condition (PNC). Burton Park also includes a specialist, newly refurbished Huntington’s disease ward.

Burton Park is situated in the historic, thriving market town of Melton Mowbray. Here, patients can access local amenities such as a leisure centre, cinema, shops, restaurants and cafés to support their full rehabilitation programme.

Burton Park has 50 beds across three units:

  • Warwick Lodge – 15-bedded specialist Huntington’s disease unit
  • Dalby Unit – 9-bedded unit for females with an ABI or progressive neurological condition
  • Cleves Lodge – 26-bedded unit for males with an ABI. Split over two clinical areas, providing 13 beds for acute neurobehavioural rehabilitation and 13 beds for slow stream rehabilitation

Our approach

We aim to reduce challenging behaviour, optimise functional skills and promote quality of life for all of our patients. We offer an initial 12-week assessment with goal-focused rehabilitation and support from admission.

A variety of care pathways are available, including acute and longer term neurobehavioural rehabilitation and person centred care, emphasising the least restrictive setting. We are also able to offer step down facilities including community based houses within Priory Brain Injury Services throughout the UK.

We ensure that there is an emphasis on building skills within the community and real life settings, with real work opportunities available as part of the vocational programme.

We are also able to meet physical health and mental health needs within our service as part of our overall treatment plans. We can offer services for those within a Mental Health Act or Deprivation of Liberty Safeguarding framework, as well as working collaboratively with informal patients.

Measuring outcomes

Outcomes are measured using specialised behavioural and functional measurement tools.

A recent evaluation of our service demonstrated a 75.5% reduction in the rate of aggression from admission for those still in the services at the time of the study and a 90% reduction at discharge. Leading competitors report a 53.2% reduction. There were also improvements in all other outcome measures employed in these services suggesting that greater personal autonomy and independence were also achieved.
