Providing quality, inspiring innovation and delivering value is what we set out to achieve at Priory Healthcare. Enabling our patients with mental health illness to receive a truly integrated and holistic approach to their treatment, regardless of complexity or severity, thanks to the knowledge and expertise of our multidisciplinary clinical teams.

Priory Hospital Potters Bar is a 50 bedded hospital with 4 wards specialising in acute specialist mental health services. We provide patient care pathways in partnership with the NHS, offering high quality, value for money, responsive mental health services.

The hospital is located just of the M25 making it easily accessible from London, the Home Counties and East Anglia. It is also well located for patient access to the town and local services. Our recently refurbished hospital offers en-suite accommodation for male and female patients in our acute wards and for male and female patients in our 2 new HDU wards. We offer psychological and occupational therapy and social and recreational activities. We put great emphasis on providing a homely and welcoming environment for patients and visiting carers and a secure garden area is also available.
