The Priory Hospital Market Weighton - Yorkshire

The Priory Hospital Market Weighton is a registered independent hospital, supporting males with severe and enduring mental health conditions, Learning Disabilities, those who could be on the Autistic Spectrum and those who may have complex presentations with behaviours that challenge. 

Within a short drive of York and Hull, the service is ideally located for safe, structured and gradual reintegration into the local community

The core objective of the hospital is to deliver rehabilitation, stabilise mental health, reduce the behaviours that challenge, develop daily living skills and actively maintain working relationships with case managers and community teams to enable a smooth and successful transition to life outside the hospital environment.  We also offer a bespoke offender treatment programme for service users who have a significant forensic history.  We facilitate a safe, structured and gradual reintroduction into the local community.

Westfield View residential bungalow is an exciting new residential development close to the main hospital which offers a pathway into the community with multidisciplinary team involvement.

At The Priory Hospital Market Weighton we offer an enhanced quality of life within the hospital environment, and support recovery through the provision of a comprehensive range of evidence based care and treatment. The treatment pathway will support service users towards their individual goals and is designed to promote autonomy, safety management and transparent collaborative care planning.

What we treat

The purpose built hospital is an open service with a locked door policy and can accommodate up to 15 service users in two distinct areas, providing a care pathway to support them in their recovery and rehabilitation. All bedrooms are well appointed and have en-suite facilities:

  • The main ward has accommodation for 11 men with communal lounges, activity rooms, laundry room, dining room and a quiet area.
  • Eastfield View, a self-contained annexe, provides a step-down service for up to four men once they have developed some independent living skills.
  • Westfield View, set just outside the hospital grounds, is an independently registered residential unit offering a clear pathway for service users stepping down from hospital, whilst offering MDT support from the main hospital.

We are committed to ensuring that a service user's length of stay is at a level that fits in with their recovery and wherever possible, enable progression to a community environment. We offer an opportunity to maintain and develop appropriate strategies to facilitate movement through their individual pathway.

Physical healthcare needs are often high within our service user group. Full access and registration with the community GP service is available for all service users and we have robust communication with the service to optimise and maintain physical healthcare.
