Specialist neurological rehabilitation

About

Our specialist neurological rehabilitation service offers assessments, recommendations and goal-orientated rehabilitation for people who experience difficulties managing life as a result of a neurological illness or life-changing injury. This service is fully integrated with community services and offers intensive, tailored rehabilitation programmes and specialist management for patients.

We are working in partnership with Central London Community Healthcare and Hillingdon Hospital NHS Trust to provide this service to patients with neurological conditions who are registered with a GP in Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea, or Hammersmith & Fulham.

Our integrated service provides inpatient and outreach care to people with neurological conditions. At our 16-bed inpatient unit at Charing Cross Hospital, patients are cared for by specialist rehabilitation nurses and have access to full medical support as well as timetabled therapy sessions throughout the week.

Our outreach service team is based in the community and offers carer training to patients at home as well as intensive therapy. These patients are managed by a consultant in rehabilitation medicine and have access to specialist nursing.
