The Priory Group


Search our investment portfolio

The UK’s leading independent provider of mental health and specialist care services.

Priory was established in 1980 with the purchase of the Priory Hospital. The Group subsequently expanded to additional hospitals and diversification of its core services. It is the leading independent operator in the UK mental health sector and offers the highest quality levels of complex care in a cost-effective package.

Advent is partnering with the management team to drive operational improvements and organic growth across the Group, as well as supporting consolidation. In the first year of Advent’s ownership, Priory purchased Craegmoor, creating the UK’s largest integrated health and social care business. Advent’s Portfolio Support Group has been working with Priory’s management on a wide range of projects to build on the Group’s market leading service levels.

As NHS reforms progress, Priory expects to become a partner of choice for the many new public sector commissioning bodies requiring its range of specialized services. While the healthcare reforms are implemented, Priory is focused on developing integrated care pathways to accelerate recovery times for the users of its services and deliver best value for payers.
