Priory invests £350,000 into new wellbeing centre

The Priory Group has invested £350,000 into a new ‘walk-in’ wellbeing centre in Bristol.

Priory Wellbeing Centre Bristol provides therapy and treatments for a range of mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, stress, eating disorders, addiction, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) as well as bereavement and grief.

The centre accepts self-funding patients and those with health insurance.

The opening of Priory Wellbeing Centre Bristol is the latest in a series of centres launched by the Priory Group in Birmingham, Southampton, Canterbury, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Greater Manchester, Oxford and London.

‘At the start of this new decade, our team is so proud to be opening this much needed clinic to allow swift assessment and treatment of people in Bristol and across the South West, where there has been a gap for patients for some time,’ said Mandy Ryan, manager of the Bristol wellbeing centre. ‘Our ethos has always been to promote the importance of early assessment and diagnosis. We hope that by offering a friendly and discreet service that is accessible and convenient, we can play an active part in supporting all our patients towards a better quality of life and long-term recovery.’

Dr Leanne Hayward, consultant psychiatrist at Priory’s Bristol Hospital and the wellbeing centre, said the wellbeing centre would meet much needed demand in the Bristol area.

‘Those with mental health conditions need to receive the right treatment as soon as possible, and at the wellbeing centre we offer the swift and specialist support patients require. I look forward to working with patients at this excellent new service.’

Last month, Priory invested £1m into a new mental health ward for young people at its Roehampton Hospital in south-west London.
