Priory Hospital Dorking provides an 18-bedded, acute mental health service along with a 3-bedded step-down, community focused ward. We support males of working age, experiencing an acute mental health episode, providing the necessary levels of care required during crises.

- We have specialist expertise in acute conditions
- We work towards discharge from day one of admission
- We provide weekly ward rounds and meetings outside this time, for professionals to meet the team
- 7-day follow-ups are available for all discharged patients

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.
Our clinical programmes focus on crisis support, for a smooth transition back to the community, or to an ongoing therapeutic pathway. We offer programmes that are specifically focused on minimising the risk to self and others and building skills for a safe and supported discharge.
As part of their treatment programme, patients are supported and encouraged to utilise community facilities. However, on-site, patients have access to the following:
- Supervised gym classes
- Rehabilitation kitchen
- Pool and tennis tables
- Arts and crafts
- Internet café and Skype facilities
