‘Inadequate’ High Wycombe hospital to be closed by The Priory

The Priory Group’s hospital in High Wycombe, which caters for children aged 13 to 17 with learning disabilities and/or autism, is to be closed after the health and care regulator rated it inadequate.

Inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) found that the Buckinghamshire facility was “not adequately equipped to care for young people with complex needs”.

The Priory Group, best known for its London clinic, which is a refuge for celebrities with addiction problems, said the High Wycombe hospital would shut this weekend and its patients would be transferred to other units.
