Priory Hospital East Midlands offers low secure, psychiatric intensive care, and rehabilitation and recovery services for females aged 18 years or older with a primary condition of mental illness and personality disorder. We work with females who are stepping down from secure services, or stepping up from community or other inpatient rehabilitation care.

Priory Hospital East Midlands is comprised of:

  • Harris Ward - a low secure continuing care ward for females
  • Littlemore Ward - female psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU)
  • Barton Ward - a community facing inpatient rehabilitation ward for females with complex mental illness and personality disorder

Our approach

Patients are offered a wide range of vocational and educational opportunities at this hospital and a varied timetable which includes their choice of therapeutic and meaningful activities to suit individual needs and interests.

The occupational therapy programmes focus on promoting independence in the community and the development of day-to-day living skills.

This includes:

  • Individual cooking practice
  • Budgeting
  • Creative writing
  • Breakfast club
  • Social club
  • Hobbies
  • Occupational therapy drop-in groups for patients who may wish to discuss any issues with their allocated occupational therapist
  • Community dog walking
  • Vocational card craft
  • Relaxation
  • Aqua aerobics
  • Healthy living
  • Vocational knitting

The environment

We believe that the environment in which treatment takes place, is as important as the therapy itself. East Midlands provides:

  • On-site gym including fitness equipment
  • Library
  • Computer room
  • Salon
  • Gardens within secure grounds
  • Tennis court
  • Rehabilitation kitchens, on and off the wards
  • Multi-functional rooms for arts and crafts
  • 2 therapy rooms
  • Access to the community in local small towns with a good bus link
