Philosophy of Care

We treat people with dignity and respect, which enhances individual choice and quality of life. Our skilled clinicians engage with each patient to fully understand their past and use this knowledge to inform the present.


Shrewsbury Court Independent Hospital aims to provide care and treatment that places the patient at the centre of all our endeavours.

In order to achieve this, we involve our patients and their carers, as much as possible, within their assessment, care and treatment. Where this is not possible, we ensure that there is transparency in the decision-making process.

The hospital provides facilities and an environment that aims to promote the acquisition and maintenance of life skills within a safe and enabling environment for everyone. Central to our access eligibility criteria is the individual and their personal capacity for ‘recovery’. The individual and our clinicians can then work together to develop a personal formulation of recovery and rehabilitation care pathways.
