Cheadle MP praises Priory Hospital's "dedication, expertise and quality of care"
During his time at the hospital, Mr Hunter was able to see first hand the services provided to support young people and adults with a range of complex mental health conditions, including eating disorders and personality disorders.
Commenting on his visit, Mr Hunter said: “I welcomed the opportunity to see for myself the local services being provided for often the most vulnerable in society. What struck me was the dedication and expertise shown by the hospital’s staff, with patients clearly valuing the quality of the care they were receiving.”
Cheadle Royal seeks to support patients to re-engage with the local community as part of their programme of care wherever possible, and employs over 420 specialist staff, including nursing staff, healthcare assistants, psychologists, specialty doctors, consultant psychiatrists, occupational therapists and social workers.
During his visit, Mr Hunter was joined by Hospital Director, Kris Irons, as well as Priory Group’s Chief Executive, Tom Riall, and Cheadle Royal’s Medical Director, Dr David Kingsley. Ms Irons said: “We were very pleased to welcome Mr Hunter on site today, showcasing the high quality care and support patients are receiving within his constituency. We are equally delighted he has recognised the work of the hospital’s dedicated staff who work selflessly towards achieving better outcomes for those in their care.”
