Priory opens new mental health care facility in Newbury
The Cloisters is a 24-bedded adult rehabilitation unit which offers treatment and rehabilitation in a homely setting for men and women with enduring mental health difficulties. Patients previously receiving care at Prospect Park Hospital in Reading have moved to the new facility.
Priory Group has worked with Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust - the main provider of NHS mental health and community health services in the county - to provide the new care facility in Newbury.
It has resulted in a £3.5 million investment into the local area with 30 new jobs created.
