The Priory Hospital St Neots offers assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for male and female patients suffering from a broad range of neuropsychiatric conditions or functional disorders.
Our multidisciplinary team (MDT) delivers individually assessed packages of care that support community integration and the retention and development of skills for daily living. The MDT comprises experienced professionals in the fields of neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and dietetics.
The hospital engages consultants from the NHS on a sessional basis in the fields of medical rehabilitation, neurology and pain management. Day to day medical care is provided by a well-respected local General Practitioner. On-site therapy services are provided alongside Activities of Daily Living (ADL) kitchens, education suite, sensory room and gardens.
Care packages are developed with service users to include clearly defined, achievable and regularly reviewed milestones and goals. Our values of holism, collaboration and respect make us ambitious for those of our patients who can progress and sensitive to the difficulties faced by those patients who cannot.
