Priory Hospital Solihull is a 31-bedded high dependency rehabilitation service for males and females requiring a positive environment to stabilise the symptoms of mental illness. We also provide a community focused rehabilitation ward and this care pathway helps patients to develop positive self-management and independent skills for a successful discharge into the community.

The hospital is made up of three separate wards:

  • Arley – longer-term high dependency ward with 10 en-suite bedrooms. We focus on the development of relapse prevention skills and symptom management to maintain improvements, and patients will progress with their community reintegration
  • Millison – community rehabilitation unit with 11 en-suite bedrooms. We provide the opportunity to practice independent living skills and focus on engagement outside of the hospital in order to complete a seamless transition into the community
  • Elkin – 10-bedded high dependency, female only ward 

Our approach

Solihull is a place where patients are part of the team. We work together to build the confidence and skills to re-join a meaningful place in the community, or just as often, start afresh.

We offer a diverse range of therapies across an expert multidisciplinary team of nursing, medical, occupational therapy and psychology staff. We offer evidence based treatment programmes and use a range of clinical/ patient-rated outcome measures to assess progress through the service.

We aim for the patient’s voice to be at the centre of all that we do. We intend for all care plans to be co-produced with patients and carers. We work with patients and carers to help them define and achieve their recovery goals. We hold weekly community meetings on each ward, attended by both patients and staff, at which the patient experience is explored and improvements suggested.

We offer a range of on-site therapeutic interventions for our patient group, completed by various members of the multidisciplinary team. Along with therapies such as CBT, activities include:

  • Cooking
  • Budgeting
  • Vocational support
  • Social skills development
  • Living space management
  • Using public transport

Physical health needs are met by the on-site medical team and in liaison with our partner GP surgery.
