Prospect Park Hospital

Prospect Park Hospital is our main site for people in Berkshire with mental health conditions. We have a number of inpatient wards, including a specialist dementia ward, and a specialist unit for people with learning disabilities.

We also have a healthcare library which is open to all our staff, other local trusts and medical students.

We encourage family and friends to visit their loved ones whilst they are in hospital. We are flexible about visiting and will do everything we can to help you visit at a time that is convenient to you and the patient. We don't have fixed visiting hours but we would generally ask that you to come in between 10am and 8pm. If this isn’t suitable, please talk to us so that we can make arrangements to avoid disturbing other patients.

Please bear in mind that while in hospital your family member or friend may be receiving specific treatment or have a personal care plan in place which they need to follow.

Very occasionally, a patient's wishes regarding visiting may not be the same as the person wishing to visit. In this case, we will always give priority to the patient in our care.

We understand that being in hospital can make some patients feel unsettled. 

Due to their mental health condition, some patients may feel uneasy and may be a risk to themselves or to other patients and staff. 

We’re committed to working in the spirit of the Act, and to use methods to help keep patients calm and our staff safe while we provide care.
