The hospital is part of the Priory Group, Europe's leading independent provider of specialist mental health care. The Priory Hospital Woking is situated near Chobham in Surrey, and is set in several acres of private grounds.

For people suffering from mild to moderate mental health issues, such as stress and anxiety, the hospital provides a range of outpatient based therapy services such as individual and group based cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT).

Priory has a highly experienced team of mental health professionals and support staff, which include consultant psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and therapists.

The service specialises in addiction treatment for substance and behavioural dependency, such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, relationships and shopping.

  • FREE assessment to explore the problem in more detail without obligation to continue into treatment
  • FREE weekly aftercare support for 12 months post completion of the 28 day programme
  • FREE family support during and post treatment

Environment and facilities

The environment we create for patients is as important as the treatment, itself.  To this end, each patient has the privacy of his or her own comfortable bedroom, with television, telephone, and en-suite facilities.

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

Communal areas are pleasant and homely. Patients are encouraged to use the facilities such as the tennis court, recreation room and well equipped art room.

Accessing treatment - Referral and admission

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 the medical secretariat on 01483 489 211.
  • For further details of our specialist treatment programmes or for a list of staff/visiting consultants, together with their areas of special interests, please telephone admissions on 01483 489 211.

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 employees point of contact they should liaise with the company doctor to arrange a referral, if this is required.

The first step to recovery for the patient is to undergo an initial assessment to identify the issues, make any diagnosis and draw up the most appropriate treatment plan. For our addictions treatment programme we offer a free initial addiction assessment.   Treatment is then available on an outpatient, inpatient and day patient basis.
