Priory Hospital Chelmsford
Priory Hospital Chelmsford, located just outside London, is set within a beautiful Grade II listed, 19th century building, complete with three acres of private gardens. The hospital first opened in 1992 and since then, has established an excellent reputation for providing fast access to high quality treatment for a diverse range of mental health difficulties including addictions, depression, anxiety, and stress. We are also able to provide high quality therapy to individuals struggling with gender issues, low self-esteem, and those struggling with a diagnosis of HIV. Chelmsford is one of the UK’s leading treatment centres and is rated by former patients for its excellence, dedication, commitment to individuals, as well as producing outstanding treatment outcomes.
COVID-19: Customer update
To protect both patients and staff, we are not currently offering face-to-face therapy on an outpatient or day care basis at our hospitals or wellbeing centres. Assessments and therapy can still be accessed remotely via our Priory Connect online therapy service and through Skype.
Inpatient services are still available across our network of private healthcare hospitals, with flexible options for pre-admission assessments being offered.
We are still able to offer expert inpatient addiction treatment during this time and many of our addiction services, including our free addiction assessment, are now taking place online or over the phone. For more information on Priory’s approach to addiction treatment during the current COVID-19 outbreak, please access our dedicated page.
Continued support during the coronavirus outbreak
In this short video, Consultant Psychiatrist and Medical Director, Dr Adrian Lord, offers advice and support to GPs looking to refer patients for mental health treatment. He talks to us about the services available at Chelmsford, how they have adapted to the COVID-19 outbreak and explains how they are ready to accept more admissions.
Our evidence-based interventions at Chelmsford are in-keeping with best practice in the field of mental health and addictions, and are developed by an expert team of psychiatrists, mental health nurses, psychologists and therapists. This multidisciplinary approach means that we are able to tailor all treatment programmes according to the unique requirements of our patients, ensuring that they benefit from a truly personalised package of person-centred therapy. In addition, all patients are involved in any decisions that are made about their care, and are placed at the heart of their treatment journey, in order to foster the best possible individual outcomes.
