Who we are
The inpatient ward is overseen by a matron and ward manager with a team of registered nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, healthcare assistants, rehabilitation assistants, a care manager, a pharmacist and visiting medical officer.
What we do
We provide a rehabilitation-focused inpatient approach to care. There are 24 beds available and the hospital takes patients directly from their own homes, and from the acute trusts. We are able to provide end of life and stroke care.
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.
Other services at the hospital include a minor injury unit, X-ray department and outpatient clinics and many other community-based teams.
