A £1 MILLION investment in The Priory Hospital in Stapleton will enable more patients with mental health needs to be treated.
The announcement comes ahead of World Health Day - on Friday April 7 - which this year focuses on the theme of depression.
The independent psychiatric hospital, in Heath House Lane, has increased its beds for in-patients to 73 to help cope with demand for its services.
The hospital, rated “good” by the industry regulator, the Care Quality Commission, has long-stay rehabilitation and acute mental health inpatient units. It also provides a range of outpatient-based therapy services, and a specialist eating disorder service.
With the expansion, Priory has also recruited more staff.
