Priory Hospital Burgess Hill is a specialist, low secure service providing care for people with mental illnesses and/or personality disorders. We have a male acute service, high dependency units for males and females, a female low secure unit, and a specialist personality disorder unit.

The hospital is split across five units:

  • Wendy Orr – male, high dependency
  • Helen Keller – female, high dependency
  • Edith Cavell – acute male-only service
  • Michael Shepherd – female, Low Secure
  • Amy Johnson – personality disorders

Amy Johnson is a 10-bedded ward, which helps patients to acquire the skills needed to effectively manage their own emotions, be inter-personally effective and tolerate distress. Our aim is to help patients to live a happier, more independent life.

Our service at Burgess Hill comprises:

  • Individualised and flexible care pathways
  • Highly experienced multidisciplinary team
  • Rapid access to the highest quality care
  • Recovery-focused approach for a wide range of mental health needs
  • Expertise in managing:
    • Challenging behaviours
    • Complex needs
    • Severe and enduring mental health
    • Personality disorders

Our approach

We recognise the importance of an individual pathway, designed to provide a safe but supportive and structured environment.

Protecting all of our patients is at the forefront of our minds and we ensure that safeguarding best practice is followed to the highest possible degree. We strive to maintain a transparent and open culture where everyone feels safe and able to share any issues.

Our expertise enables us to support patients with a high level of risk and challenging behaviours including individuals with high risks of self-harming behaviour and people who may require a period of stabilisation achieved through high dependency care or acute care, depending on their diagnosis.

Our clinical programmes focus on:

  • Rehabilitation onsite and in the community, including programmes that are specifically focused on treating offending and challenging behaviours, and minimising the risk to self and others
  • Building skills to increase independence to promote people stepping down to care in the least restrictive setting, appropriate to their health
  • Substance misuse and addiction treatments

Burgess Hill Recovery College
