Who we are

We are team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, dieticians, nurses, rehabilitation assistants and administrators who provide rehabilitation for adults with progressive and non-progressive neurological disability. This may include stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis (MS) Parkinson’s disease and motor neurone disease. The team has close links with the neuro-psychology service and works closely with social services, hospitals and the voluntary sector, including the MS Society and Parkinson’s UK.

What we do

We support discharged patients who may have had a stroke or brain injury. The team also helps support people who have a long-term condition such as MS.

We work in the most appropriate community setting, which can be at home, in a day centre or in an out-patient clinic. The team runs a range of therapy groups including balance and exercise and fatigue management. The team works with the patient and family to ensure rehabilitation is carried over into everyday activities.

How do you use this service?

You need to be referred by a GP or healthcare professional.

Of enormous benefit in every respect- nothing was too much bother for them and always willing to provide suggestions to problems. I responded to their kindness, understanding and cheerfulness.

Please tell physio how amazing she is. She put me back on my feet and I feel so well and back to normal following a large cerebral haemorrhage. She is amazing, encouraging and kind.

Nice to meet people with same experiences and neuro condition. It has helped me to relax and encouraged me to do things I thought I couldn't do and alternate ways of doing things.
