Priory Hospital East Midlands, located between Nottingham and Mansfield, is a 28-bedded specialist acute and psychiatric intensive care service for female patients. It has three wards which include:

  • 2 acute wards
  • 1 psychiatric intensive care unit

We offer individualised care packages for patients and every individual is allocated their own consultant psychiatrist and named nurse. We specialise in managing behaviours that lead to distress, which is supported by a strong team of psychologists and occupational therapists. Our multidisciplinary team specialises in positive behavioural support planning, to help patients in managing and developing new strategies to improve their distress and trauma.

The hospital offers a pleasant environment which includes en-suite bedrooms, lounges, quiet rooms, occupational therapy kitchen and a gym. Each ward also has its own safe garden for use by patients.

Littlemore Ward
