Priory Hospital Altrincham - NHS Services

Priory Hospital Altrincham is a leading mental health hospital based in Cheshire. Set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, we offer expert treatment and care in partnership with the NHS for:

  • Child and adolescent eating disorders
  • Adult acute mental health

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 a private service where funding can be accessed via private medical insurance, or individuals can self-pay. For more information, please visit our dedicated private page .

Our approach

Adult acute mental health service

Altrincham’s acute service aims to achieve minimum lengths of stay by providing an extension to NHS care pathways during times of fluctuating demand. Our team works closely with referring Trusts and we work collaboratively with discharge teams, to ensure a smooth transition back into existing community services, or to an individual’s home where possible.

Our acute unit at Altrincham is Tatton Ward, a 14-bedded, mixed-gender unit for adults aged 18 years and older in need of care for a range of mental health conditions. A patient may:

  • Be showing risk of violence and aggression
  • Be at risk of suicide
  • Have varying levels of risk
  • Have previous failed placements

Child and adolescent eating disorder service

We provide a specialist inpatient service for young people aged up to18 struggling with eating disorders.

Altrincham’s inpatient provision works closely with community teams offering the best opportunity for the young people in our care to achieve positive outcomes. For more information please click here.
