Priory Hospital Dewsbury is situated in a community location in West Yorkshire. The hospital provides a specialist inpatient service for adults and older age males with severe and enduring mental health conditions, who may also have an undiagnosed memory related illness.
We also provide a specialist neurocognitive/dementia care service for males presenting with very agitated or aggressive behaviour.
The hospital is split into two wards:
The Hartley Ward offers rehabilitation and recovery for severe and enduring mental health service to support those complex males that not only have a diagnosed mental illness but that also present with an undiagnosed or early onset memory related condition.
The Jubilee Ward offers neurocognitive/dementia service for those showing agitated or aggressive behaviour. We offer bespoke packages of care, tailored to individual needs, which support management at different stages of the care pathway.
Our nurses play a vital leadership role on the ward – coordinating our efforts, maintaining quality standards, responding creatively to new challenges and ensuring that our patients received the best possible care at all times. That brings variety and responsibility, of course, but it also offers you tremendous scope to use your initiative and develop your skills. You will work as an integral and respected member of the wider medical care team, and your ideas and experience will help us develop best practice and enhance the quality of our patient care.

Many benefits in line with the NHS
