Specialist Rehabilitation

We provide support for patients and their families/carers, enabling them to achieve their maximum potential for physical, cognitive, social and psychological function, participation in society and quality of living.

We help patients who require specialist rehabilitation due to complex disabilites, which may include a mix of medical, physical, sensory, cognitive, communicative, behavioural and social problems.

We have a support network of multi-professional teams who have undergone recognised specialist training in rehabilitation including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, consultants, speech and language therapists, orthotists and psychologists.

Generic Assessment

This service is usually offered to people aged 60-years-old and over.

Patients receive a multidisciplinary assessment and intervention by a multidisciplinary team rather than a single discipline.

The aim of this being to avoid hospital admissions and maintain independent living.
