Priory Westfield View is a residential service that supports male residents with mental health problems and learning disabilities who have been recently discharged from inpatient hospital treatment, but require transitional support before moving back into the community. The service is located in Market Weighton, North Yorkshire. It is managed by the Priory Group, which specialises in mental healthcare and runs mental health hospitals and Wellbeing Centres across the UK.

Gary Sparkes, Registered Manager at Priory Westfield View, said: “I am so proud of our staff team for everything they have contributed to making this a great service. Our staff do their utmost for the residents we support and do so much to assist with their recovery. However, it really is a team effort, and therefore it is equally as important to thank our residents for working closely with the staff team and engaging well in their treatment.”
