Priory Group has opened Priory Pines House near Darlington in County Durham, a facility providing care, education and therapy for boys and girls who have complex psychological difficulties, sexually inappropriate behaviour and associated learning requirements. Based at the Priory Middleton St George hospital, the service will accept up to 16 young people aged between seven and 19 from across the UK requiring this very specialist type of care. Eight places are available on 52-week a year residential basis while the other eight are daycare/education or respite only. Priory is also investing around £1m in educational facilities at a second North East site. Hurworth House, Darlington, will provide day school facilities for up to 35 young people with special educational needs and will open later in the year.
