Priory Hospital Preston is a 38-bedded independent mental health hospital, specialising in the management and treatment of acute mental ill health and eating disorders. Opened in 1998, the hospital has established an excellent reputation for providing the highest standards of care together with an extensive range of services delivered across three units:

  • Bartle Ward – 10-bedded eating disorders
  • Cottam Ward – 12-bedded acute mental health
  • Rosemary Ward – 16-bedded acute mental health

Our services work in partnership with the NHS to provide the best quality outcomes for all the patients in our care.

Our approach

Eating disorders

The Bartle Unit provides effective individualised programmes of care for the successful treatment of anorexia, bulimia and other related conditions.

This unit offers a range of facilities, services and expertise including:

  • A well established, welcoming environment
  • Quality Network for Eating Disorders (QED) accreditation

The first step to recovery for the patient is to undergo an initial assessment to identify the issues, make any diagnosis and draw up the most appropriate treatment plan. Support offered on our eating disorders programme includes:

  • Occupational therapy
  • Group therapy
  • A dietitian
  • A psychologist

Acute mental health

We have two acute psychiatric wards for adults in crisis and who need safe monitoring and assessment as well as medication management. 

On these wards, we provide a full therapeutic timetable that is run by occupational therapy and our activity co-ordinator.  The team use a holistic approach towards the patient and this includes their physical care.
