The Cloisters

The Cloisters is a male 25-bedded hospital set within a peaceful environment on the edge of Newbury. The unit offers inpatient rehabilitation to West Berkshire patients who require mental health rehabilitation to support them in increasing their recovery pathway and independence.

We measure the effectiveness of our treatment and interventions based on the positive impact they have on the individual and their family/carers. We aim to involve our patients in their care as much as possible to enable them to gain a sense of control over their lives. 

Our approach is concerned with:

  • Self-management
  • Self-determination
  • Choice
  • Responsibility
  • Increased social inclusion
  • Reintegration into the local and wider community

We want our patients to remain valued members of society and contribute to their local community. We believe that our patients will be able to develop strategies to re-skill and to restore their former capacity by managing their symptoms, care and treatment.
