Complemented by extensive grounds and spacious communal areas, Priory Burton Park provides specialist neurobehavioural rehabilitation, for those with an acquired brain injury (ABI), including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and stroke, or a progressive neurological condition (PNC).
We aim to reduce challenging behaviour, optimise functional skills and promote quality of life for all of our patients. We offer an initial 12-week assessment with goal-focused rehabilitation and support from admission.
Burton Park has 50 beds across three units:
- Warwick Lodge – 15-bedded Huntington’s disease unit
- Dalby Unit – 9-bedded unit for females with an ABI or PNC
- Cleves Lodge – 26-bedded unit for males with an ABI. Split over 2 clinical areas, providing 13 beds for acute neurobehavioural rehabilitation and 13 beds for slow stream rehabilitation
A variety of care pathways are available, including acute and longer-term neurobehavioural rehabilitation and person-centred care, emphasising the least restrictive setting. We are also able to offer step-down facilities including community-based houses within our Brain Injury Services throughout the UK.
We ensure that there is an emphasis on building skills within the community and real-life settings, with real work opportunities available as part of the vocational programme.
We are also able to meet physical health and mental health needs within our service as part of our overall treatment plans. We can offer services for those within a Mental Health Act or Deprivation of Liberty Safeguarding framework, as well as working collaboratively with informal patients.
Focus on Safety
Our absolute priority is to make sure we operate safe and effective services 24/7 and that all staff understand what is required of them to make that happen. Click here to read more.
Specialist Huntington’s disease ward
Warwick Lodge, our new Huntington’s disease ward, has recently opened in July 2018. The new specialist service received £1 million of investment, which enabled a complete environmental re-design and refurbishment, the addition of state-of-the-art specialist equipment, and ultimately, the provision of bespoke support to those at varying stages of Huntington's disease.
An environment suited to recovery
Burton Park is situated in the historic, thriving market town of Melton Mowbray. Here, patients can access local amenities such as a leisure centre, cinema, shops, restaurants and cafés to support their full rehabilitation programme.
Burton Park boasts a range of facilities which include:
- Rooms with en-suite facilities
- Rehabilitation kitchens
- Spacious communal areas (including garden)
- Activity areas
- Extensive grounds
- Physiotherapy room
- Large atrium
Outcomes are measured using specialised behavioural and functional measurement tools.
A recent evaluation of our service demonstrated:
- A 76% reduction in the rate of aggression from admission for those still in the services at the time of the study
- A 90% reduction in the rate of aggression at discharge
There were also improvements in all other outcome measures employed in these services suggesting that greater personal autonomy and independence were also achieved.
