The Priory Hospital in Dewsbury provides care and support for men with long-term mental health problems; some patients have a learning disability. The hospital provides care to patients who are detained under the Mental Health Act, but also patients who are at the hospital on an informal basis.

The CQC inspected The Priory Hospital Dewsbury in November 2013. We found the hospital was not compliant with our previous regulations with regard to the management of medicines. At this inspection, we found there were different issues relating to medicines, which meant the hospital was not meeting this regulation.

The last Mental Health Act review was on 21 July 2015, the reviewer made recommendations and The Priory Hospital Dewsbury had made the required improvements.

The accountable officer for the service is Margaret Doyle. Margaret Doyle was not the accountable officer at the time of the inspection.
