We provide a rehabilitation-focussed inpatient approach to care. There are 26 beds available and the hospital takes patients directly from their own homes, when they are unable to cope at home, but do not need to be in an acute hospital.
We offer a service for patients, within the acute sector, who are medically stable but need further rehabilitation.
Our aim is to help patients regain their independence, where appropriate and to teach them coping strategies, for example after a stroke. Staff work in partnership with the patient, carer and relatives to ensure all aspects of care, including assessment of needs on admission, joint goal setting, planning, implementation and evaluation of care, are effective.
We have a day hospital where patients can be referred for tailored rehabilitation that is goal-focussed. There are specialist services in the day hospital for people suffering from Parkinson’s Disease and patients who have a history of falling.
We also have an outpatients’ department with visiting clinicians and service including physiotherapy, podiatry, an orthoptist; children’s hearing; dental; phlebotomy, health visiting; midwifery; hearing therapy; speech therapy; primary care psychological therapy; community neurological rehabilitation; we have a minor injury unit and x-ray facilities.
The hospital’s League of Friends runs a coffee shop and restaurant on the site and also provides newspapers for patients on the ward.
