Priory Elm Park located in Essex, is a specialist brain injury service which focuses on providing neurobehavioural rehabilitation for people with complex neurological needs, following an acquired brain injury (ABI), or traumatic brain injury (TBI). This includes the assessment as well as treatment of all individuals.

We provide neuro rehabilitation for detained and non-detained people, with an aim of reducing challenging behaviour, optimising functional skills and supporting a successful and sustainable discharge back into the community.

The services are provided at Elm Park’s main site and two community rehabilitation houses - Elm House and Elm Cottage.

We have a full discharge pathway comprising of 24 beds, split across the three units.

Inpatient rehabilitation hospital

Elm Park is a 17-bedded intensive rehabilitation brain injury service for males. It boasts a full range of on-site facilities including en-suite rooms, rehabilitation kitchen, extensive grounds, gym, football pitch, woodland walks and activity rooms.

Step down community rehabilitation houses

  • Elm House - 4-bedded community rehabilitation brain injury service for males and females
  • Elm Cottage - 3-bedded community rehabilitation brain injury service for males and females

Patients can be admitted directly into the community rehabilitation houses or can benefit from stepping down from Elm Park as part of their discharge pathway.
