The majority of referrals made to a Priory hospital are through a patient's GP. A referral can be made by telephone, in writing, via email or via fax to the hospital's admission department, who will then pass these details on to the relevant consultant.
To make an outpatient appointment with a specific consultant, please telephone medical secretaries on 020 8876 8261. For further details of our specialist treatment programmes or for a list of staff and visiting consultants, together with their areas of special interests, please telephone marketing on 020 8876 8261.
Any company wishing to make a referral, or member of staff wising to be admitted to a Priory hospital, will need to be referred by their company occupational health doctor. Where an occupational health nurse has been the employees point of contact they should liaise with the company doctor to arrange a referral, if this is required.

Family programme and aftercare
Within all our services, where possible, we encourage the patient's family to become involved in the treatment programme as this can help give a greater understanding of the illness - hopefully leading to a speedier recovery once the patient has returned home.
In addition to medical excellence we provide a safe relaxed atmosphere at the hospital, which facilitates the recovery process.
The therapy programme
The personality disorder service provides a 12-month recovery-focussed programme with dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) at its therapeutic centre. The skills taught within the DBT programme will promote greater self-awareness, and will also teach the individual to build resilience while managing overwhelming situations more effectively.
Through the DBT programme, the ward team will support patients to:
- manage life outside of hospital safely
- engage in voluntary or paid work
- enjoy healthy relationships
- explore their own interests and
- move forward to a future they have planned and worked hard for.
Relapse prevention and discharge
The final stage of the DBT programme will focus on relapse prevention and the building of life skills outside of the unit. It is envisaged that during the final stage of the programme, the patient will be considering registering at college and/or looking for voluntary placements, based on work completed on their Personal health Plan and interests developed during their time on the unit.
This stage of the programme provides the patient with the opportunity to practise skills and take “positive risks” for their future. We believe that exposing individuals to new situations during these last few months is imperative to ensuring a successful discharge.
Quality and regulation
You can be assured that the treatment patients receive will be of the highest standard, as we are continually monitored by the independent regualtor the Care Quality Commission and are benchmarked against the National Service Framework.
