The Orion Unit is an inpatient service at Highbury Hospital for adults aged between 18 and 65.
Our patients have an intellectual disability and complex mental health difficulties. They might also have challenging behaviours that cannot be managed in the community.
We care for people in difficulty and times of distress. This is an emotionally safe place where patients and staff find out how to co-operate with one another.
Our staff provide therapies and help patients to become ready for treatments delivered by others.
Patients at the Unit have access to an expert team whose work is innovative and research-active.
The Unit has disabled access. Visitor parking is available.
Help in a crisis
Outside of office hours please contact your GP service, NHS 111, or in an emergency go to your local Accident and Emergency (A&E) department.
