Providing quality, inspiring innovation and  delivering value is what we set out to achieve at Priory Healthcare. Enabling our patients with mental health difficulties 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.

The Priory Hospital Glasgow provides a peaceful atmosphere, surrounded by relaxing landscaped gardens and is the perfect environment for treatment. With over 30 inpatients at any time, we also cater for over 400 outpatients who seek our services for psychological services without disrupting their daily lives.

In January 2015, the Glasgow Hospital was awarded the Priory’s “Site of the Year”. This is a demonstration of the Hospital’s strong clinical reputation, founded upon the quality of its care and expertise.

We are one of the UK’s leading centres for the treatment of depression, anxiety and addictions. The hospital is led by an e­ffective and experienced multidisciplinary team. They work together to develop personalised, recovery-focused treatment programmes and care pathways, as well as a range of therapies, to meet all of their patients’ needs.

In addition our Eating Disorder Unit is the largest specialist inpatient unit of its kind in Scotland and due to the quality of its care patients come for treatment from all over the UK. In May 2015 the unit was included in the Quality Network for Eating Disorders (QED) under the Royal College of Surgeon’s Accreditation for Inpatient Mental Health Services (AIMS).

 

We are looking for motivated Staff Nurses with post registration experience to work as part of our multidisciplinary team.  Experience of working with Eating Disorders would be a distinct advantage.
