Keith McCoy

Keith has recently joined us in the role of Hospital Director at Recovery First. He is a registered mental health Nurse with over 20 years of experience working in the NHS across most areas of mental health, from Acute and Forensics to addictions and eating disorders. His previous roles have included being the Divisional Director for community services, Deputy Director of Nursing and Associate Director of Recovery services for London based organisations.

He believes he is very lucky and privileged to work in the field of Mental Health, where he gets to serve people who are so worthy of his time, effort and dedication, as he and others strive to deliver excellence in mental health services.

His special interests are Personality Disorder, Mental Health Nursing, Quality, and the development of staff. He was attracted to Recovery First for a number of reasons, mainly the fact that it was a unique opportunity to manage a joint venture between an NHS trust, Greater Manchester West Mental Health FT and Priory Healthcare, and also because it is a locked Rehabilitation hospital for males with Autism, and females with personality disorders. Keith is looking forward to working in partnership with others to make a difference to all the service users in our care.
