About Us

Burton Park is part of the Priory Brain Injury care pathway, which boasts extensive Brain Injury Services offered across 13 sites throughout the UK.

Priory Brain Injury Services (PBIS) provide highly specialised treatment programmes for people with acquired brain injury (ABI) grounded on national guidance and research; from acute medical rehabilitation and neurobehavioral rehabilitation through to long-term continuing care.

The diversity of our services allows a seamless care pathway for our patients as their rehabilitation needs change. Priory's Brain Injury Services is focused on using data to inform best practice, individualise care plans and measure patient outcomes

PBIS has been successfully delivering neurobehavioral rehabilitation and making a positive difference to people's lives since 1985 to people with ABI, whose challenging behaviour prevents attainment of their maximum rehabilitation potential and personal autonomy.
