Services overview

Rehabilitation and recovery

The Keston Unit is a specialist autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) unit for male and female adults funded by clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), who may also have a psychiatric co-morbidity.

The goal of any admission is:

  • To enable patients to live with contentment
  • For patients to live as independently as possible, in a community setting
  • To make a real and lasting difference in their lives

The team has specialist expertise in:

  • Managing and treating the complex presentations of co-occurring psychiatric disorders
  • Evidence-based psychiatric treatment and psychological approaches for those with ASD
  • Manifestations of ASD and discrimination from personality disorder
  • The particular challenges experienced by those with ASD in inpatient treatment settings

The ASD-sensitive ward environment and routines are created by a team of nurses (RMNs and RNLDs) and healthcare assistants with specialist training in managing ASD and other co-morbidities.

They are supported by a speech and language therapist and a physiotherapist, as required.

The core multidisciplinary team also includes a consultant psychiatrist and ward doctors, specialist clinical psychologist, an occupational therapist who is an expert in sensory assessment, and a dietitian.

Referrals are made by community teams and funding approval from NHS England is required before an admission is planned. Patients can be admitted under Section 3 of the Mental Health Act or as an informal patient.

For further information on the rehabilitation and recovery service on the Keston Unit, please download our dedicated service brochure. This offers greater detail on the provision offered, and the referral process, for ASD.

As a specialist rehabilitation and recovery service, Priory Hospital Hayes Grove also supports the Transforming Care Agenda. To learn more, please click here to read our full Transforming Care guide.

Adult eating disorders

This service is for patients funded by NHS England, who are suffering from eating disorders such as:

  • Anorexia nervosa
  • Bulimia
  • Binge eating

The Eating Disorder Unit (EDU) is made up of two distinct wards, with a total of 20 beds, which offer the following services:

  • Acute phase – mixed gender ward
  • Progression and transition – mixed gender ward

Treatment on the EDU is based on The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines and incorporates psychological therapies, for example the Maudsley Model of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adults (MANTRA) therapy. We also include occupational therapy-led activities and sessions to reinforce skills and strategies learnt during an inpatient admission. We aim to equip patients for sustained success, beyond discharge and back to the community.

If clinically appropriate, patients will typically have access to the full range of hospital facilities, including the restaurant and communal dining facilities. Similarly, access to the local area is supported with regular weekly trips arranged for patients on each ward.

Referrals to the EDU are made by community eating disorder teams and funding approval from NHS England is required before an admission is planned. Patients can be admitted under Section 3 of the Mental Health Act or as an informal patient.

Discharge planning is started at an early stage of a patient’s admission, and is done in conjunction with community teams.
