About Priory Healthcare
Priory Healthcare has structured its services to align with NHS provision, in order to ensure a consistent approach to treatment.
Our NHS services
Our extensive national network means that we are able to offer a full care pathway to patients, depending on their unique needs and the intensity of the support that is required. These include dedicated NHS care pathways from our secure services right through to a return to community living.
In the last year, we have opened a range of new wards, services and centres, enabling us to broaden our offerings and deliver increased responsiveness to the needs of the NHS, in line with regional and national demands.
Our NHS services at Priory consist of:
- Adult Acute and Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) Services
- Rehabilitation and Recovery Services
We are ready to take emergency placements from the NHS 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for adult acute mental health, PICU, adult eating disorders and CAMHS. To view our current bed availability click here.

The care that we provide is part of an overall patient pathway and we are always delighted to work closely with NHS providers to make referrals, transfers and discharges as safe and seamless as possible. We welcome NHS commissioners to visit our facilities to see our treatment environments, meet our expert staff, find out more about our care programmes, and gain a feel for our commitment to outcomes-focused treatment.
