Barchester Healthcare operates six independent hospitals across England for people with mental health issues. The range of services available is different for each hospital. Amongst many others Barchester successfully supports:
- Rehabilitative care and return to the community for people from low and medium secure environments
- Adults with complex neurological needs
- Adults under 65 with organic mental health needs, including complex, challenging dementia and alcohol-related brain injury
- Adults with Huntington’s disease
- Adults with functional mental health needs
In our hospitals we focus on enabling recovery from enduring mental illness through choice, change and a positive attitude to improvements in lifestyle.
NHS MENTAL HEALTH TRUSTS
We work collaboratively with NHS mental health foundation trusts across England to provide a rehabilitation-focused, step-down service from medium or low secure accommodation. Our services are designed to support adults living with long-term mental health conditions in some cases. We also provide respite care and short breaks.
Our hospitals are licensed by Monitor, the independent regulator for hospitals in England, and inspected by the Care Quality Commission.

CQC inspection reports
All our hospitals are regularly inspected by the Care Quality Commission. In 2015 the inspection process was transformed and hospitals were rated either as ‘inadequate’, ‘requires improvement’, ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’.
Working with local health and social care services, Barchester's independent hospitals can support individuals with mental health issues through integrated care pathways designed to lead back to independence.
We are committed to providing a comprehensive and rapid referral process which ensures that individuals are placed into the services that are most appropriate to their needs.
Safeguarding is fundamental to creating high-quality health and social care. People in need of protection include people with mental health issues and people living with dementia.
Barchester Healthcare’s annual Quality Account for our hospitals commits us to improving our service through working co-operatively with patients and other stakeholders, such as relatives and regular professional visitors, on goals set by stakeholders.
