Accommodation and facilities

The Priory Group believe that the environment created for individuals is as important as the treatment programme itself. Set in a beautiful grade two listed building, The Priory Hospital Roehampton has established a reputation for providing the very highest standards of care.

Each patient has the privacy of his or her own comfortable bedroom, with television, telephone and en-suite facilities. The newly refurbished East Wing benefits from a private garden and dining room. We also provide excellent gym facilities with a variety of classes. The scope of our services enables us to offer personalised plans for individuals undergoing the programme.

Patients are encouraged to have their meals in the dining room, which offers excellent choice of dishes. Special dietary requirements can also be catered for.

At the right time, access to the local community is a vital step for promoting patients' long-term independence. The Priory Hospital Roehampton enjoys excellent links with local leisure facilities, and is close to Richmond Park, enabling us to support patients in undertaking activities such as cycling, horse-riding and photography classes. A variety of shops, libraries, supermarkets and community colleges are a walk or short bus ride away, ensuring that external activities on the programme can be fully tailored to the individual's interests.

Fees and Funding

Referrals & Admissions

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

Corporate/occupational health

Any company wishing to make a referral, or member of staff wishing 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 employee's point of contact they should liaise with the company doctor to arrange a referral, if this is required.

In addition to medical excellence we provide a safe relaxed atmosphere at the hospital, which facilitates the recovery process.

More Info

The therapy programme

Our Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (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.

We also strive to ensure the effectiveness and success of our treatment by meeting exacting, externally validated standards and our results compare favourably with the published benchmarks. 

Visiting times

Visiting times and visitors allowed will be individual for each patient depending on their therapeutic programme. Please discuss this with the nursing team.
