A comprehensive central services structure
Priory has established a comprehensive central services structure which delivers specialist support across all areas of the governance spectrum. These central teams provide our front-line services and operational leaders, who are responsible for the delivery of high quality services, with the effective frameworks required to deliver good practice, alongside the provision of comprehensive monitoring and support networks.
Our front-line teams receive support and constructive oversight from a dedicated divisional Quality Team who employ a model of quality control, quality assurance and quality improvement across all services. These three elements enable each division to deliver a comprehensive total quality management system and ensure that care, support and treatment provided to the individuals receiving our services is of a consistently high standard.
Live your life
Each of Priory’s services is led by an operational team dedicated to delivering the highest standards of care and support. The relentless focus on quality demonstrated by our front-line teams and leaders ensures that the day-to-day operations of the services we deliver are robust, fit for purpose, and embody our motto, 'Live your life', empowering each individual who uses our services to take steps towards living their lives to the fullest.
Our governance framework also provides all of our employees with a clear set of principles around which we all operate, to ensure that we are delivering the best possible services for those whose care we have been entrusted with.
