Please note, due to some forthcoming service changes at Priory Calverton Hill, we will not be accepting any new patients into our Medium Secure Service. Following the imminent closure of our Secure Service, we will provide acute services for males and females, along with a new female PICU. Further details will follow shortly.
Priory Calverton Hill provides acute adult mental health services, delivered in partnership with Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust, at our purpose built facility in Arnold.
After two years of successfully providing services for females, we opened a second service in May on behalf of the Trust, for male patients. We also have Medium Secure Services on site for patients with a learning disability, and we are looking to develop other service types in the future.
The treatment programmes at Calverton Hill aim to optimise patient recovery and potential by treating and minimising risk behaviours and by enabling them to develop psychological/emotional, social and occupational skills and resilience.
All interventions aim to help the patient to understand the effect of their behaviour on others, to help them to manage the impact of external triggers on their behaviour and ultimately to promote the concept of recovery. These include:
- Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
- Mental health awareness group
- Individual and group psychological therapy
- Recovery and mental health awareness
- Managing anger programme (MAP)
- Drug and alcohol programme
- Relationship programme (social skills)
- Coping skills programme
- Problem solving therapy
Our structured approach to care explicitly acknowledges and supports the issue of change (or readiness for change) and is essential for successful engagement and treatment.
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.
We also provide real work opportunities (RWOs) which aim to identify job-specific skills, strengths and experience, develop job-acquisition skills, give appraisals and reviews, and identify roles and employment opportunities inside and outside the hospital setting.
Patients are supported to develop a CV, complete an application form and attend an interview.
The aim of the RWO Programme is to allow patients to acquire new transferable skills and experience, which can be used in future employment or voluntary work.
