The Priory Hospital Bristol (incorporating The Priory Grange Bristol) is an independent hospital, specialising in the management and treatment of acute and complex mental health problems.
The range of services include treatment for people suffering from mild to moderate mental health issues such as stress, anxiety and addictions, alongside longer term care for degenerative disorders such as early on-set dementia or other types of brain injury. The hospital opened in 1994 and has established an excellent reputation for providing the highest standards of care. The site is located on the outskirts of Bristol, close to the M32 and within easy access of the M4 and M5 motorways.
Acute mental health treatment
Our experienced team of mental health professionals and support staff have the expertise and experience to treat most psychiatric conditions. These include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive states, schizophrenia and all major acute psychiatric illnesses. For people suffering from mild to moderate mental health issues, such as stress and anxiety, the hospital provides a range of outpatient/day patient based therapy services such as individual and group based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). For those people requiring inpatient care for more severe psychiatric illness such as depression, psychotic illness or eating disorders, there are residential facilities for 29 patients.

Eating disorder services
The eating disorder service provides effective programmes for the successful treatment of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and other related conditions. The specially developed eating disorders programme focuses on the psychological, social, behavioural and physical sides of the illness. Our day care service provides treatment tailored to the needs of the individual. The programme involves assistance in re-establishing an appropriate relationship with food, education as to the nature and consequences of eating disorders and guidance in helping people to identify personally with this information.
Treatment is available within a purpose built facility (formerly The Priory Grange Bristol) for adults aged 18+ with severe and enduring mental health problems, whose primary need is their mental healthcare and management. Additionally, many of our patients have other issues such as chronic physical conditions, learning disabilities, organic degenerative disorders – such as early on-set dementia and Huntington's disease or other types of brain injury.
We offer a rehabilitation pathway/palliative care or longer term care for adults with severe and enduring mental illness - often with behaviours that challenge and other complex needs. We provide intensive, highly flexible care programmes in safe caring environments for needs that cannot be met within conventional hospitals or care homes or for those looking to step down from secure services, including those detained under the mental health act (with or without Ministry of Justice restrictions). Our aim is ensure optimum quality of life for our residents within the limitations posed by their illnesses.
