St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust neurorehabilitation services have exceptional staffing and equipment and provide specialist care not available at other hospitals or in the community. The services treat patients from across southwest London and the Home Counties at St George’s Hospital, Tooting and Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton.
The trust provides specialist neurorehabilitation to patients who require intensive therapy following acquired neurological conditions resulting in physical or psychological disabilities. This includes patients who have had strokes, traumatic injuries to the brain or spine, anoxic brain damage, diseases or infections of the nervous system, and long-term conditions like multiple sclerosis. Services are provided on an inpatient or day patient basis. We also provide a range of assessment and diagnostic clinics and advise on the care of patients at other treatment centres.
A comprehensive treatment service is provided by multi-disciplinary teams to address patients’ needs and maximise their recovery. The teams include nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, speech and language therapists, a dietitian, medical staff and clinical neuropsychologists. The service also has consultants in neurology, stroke medicine, rehabilitation medicine, therapy, neuropsychiatry and clinical neuropsychology, as well as doctors in training. Visiting clinicians include pharmacists.
Inpatients are admitted for an approximate 12 week programme and follow individually tailored programmes based on goals set by the patient and their family or carers, in collaboration with the treating team. Close liaison is maintained with families, carers and community services, including statutory and voluntary organisations, to help patients’ progression from the inpatient setting to the home environment.
Day patient and outpatient services include individual and group cognitive rehabilitation and vocational rehabilitation to get people back to work. Support groups for patients and families are also available.
