The Priory Highbank Centre provides specialist slow stream rehabilitation services to adults and children with brain injury and complex mental health difficulties and is part of the Priory Group.

The Walmersley Unit is a 19-bedded unit for patients aged 16+. It is a team-led, inpatient facility providing interdisciplinary team assessment and rehabilitation. The unit facilitates rehabilitation for a range of patients, from low awareness to the more independent.

The service is lead by a Consultant physician specialising in Neuro-Rehabilitation.

Robinson House is a 10 bedded male Mental Health Rehabilitation Unit. It caters for individuals with complex psychiatric conditions (often with co-morbid physical health conditions). The service has a full MDT and is led by a Consultant Psychiatrist.

The Specialty Doctor is based at The Priory Highbank Centre. There is no On-Call commitment.

The Specialty Doctor will provide day-to-day medical input on the units under the supervision of the relevant Consultant.
