About the service

The service provides specialist rehabilitation for people with long term neurological conditions. The ward consists of 12 en-suite bedrooms with excellent facilities and a full range of clinical staff.

Due to the changing nature of patients’ conditions, patients may need continuous access to a 24 hour coordinated assessment and rehabilitation stay, within a specialist setting. This helps their recovery and improves and maintains their functional abilities within the community, resulting in the prevention of further hospital admissions. It also helps to maintain their independence and reduce the support required at home, whilst providing continued support and education for relatives and carers. This reduces the cost of care in the long term.

All patients admitted to the unit receive a 2 week period of initial assessment by our specialist team, followed by goal-centred therapeutic interventions which are based on each individual’s needs.

There is a weekly multi-disciplinary team meeting where family meetings and discharges are planned and goals are set, ensuring consistency in our approach.
