Priory Hospital Lincolnshire
Priory Hospital Lincolnshire is a low secure unit for males with mental illnesses and personality disorders. Located in Gainsborough in Lincolnshire, the hospital has 28 beds to support those who are detained under the Mental Health Act.
Our service consists of two wards:
- Lancaster – 14-bedded ward for males who require stabilisation and support to decrease their levels of challenging behaviour
- Scampton – 14-bedded ward providing continuing care with a focus on rehabilitation, community reintegration and preparing the person to move further along the care pathway, or to community living
Priory Hospital Lincolnshire provides a full treatment pathway for those requiring rehabilitation, and we focus on patients learning new skills, embedding these in everyday life, progressing to maintenance of skills that are necessary for community living, as well as reducing risk behaviours and promoting health and quality of life.
There is a continued emphasis on the rights of patients, their quality of life and promotion of independence, that enhances the patient experience and prepares them for community living.
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.
