The Wellington Hospital’s Acute Neurological Rehabilitation Unit is the largest private unit in the UK specially designed for neurological rehabilitation patients.
We treat patients with complex neurological injuries and conditions affecting the brain and nervous system. We’re proud to have been awarded three years’ accreditation by CARF, a globally recognised independent body that evaluates standards in rehabilitation around the world. Our personalised programmes mean patients can quickly get back on the road to recovery. It’s important to us to keep our patients and their families at the centre of everything we do.
We care for patients with a range of neurological conditions:
• Traumatic brain injury
• Spinal cord injury
• Multiple sclerosis
• Parkinson’s disease
• Guillain-Barre syndrome
We treat patients right from the onset of their condition back to full health. Alongside the expertise of our specialist medical and nursing care, we can also offer patients immediate access to our intensive care units – giving them complete peace of mind that their every need will be taken care of.
We bring together experts from a range of specialisms to work together as an Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) around the patient’s rehabilitation needs. Your personalised team may include consultants, specialist nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists, dietitians, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists.
Advanced neurological rehabilitation – We’re the only private, CARF accredited acute neurological rehabilitation unit in London based within an acute hospital setting with the full support of the largest private intensive care unit in the UK. As a dedicated inpatient unit, we specialise in the rehabilitation of patients with stroke and traumatic brain injury. Our fully integrated advanced technology and intensive treatment within comprehensive care pathways also enable us to provide the following:
Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness (PDoC) Programme
After a severe brain injury, conscious awareness of self and environment can be reduced, only returning in stages. While many patients eventually recover their full awareness, for some, this altered level of consciousness can persist. Patients who have not regained full awareness within four weeks of their injury are said to be in a Prolonged Disorder of Consciousness state. Closely linked to The Wellington Hospital’s intensive care unit, our PDoC programme offers structured assessments to determine a patient’s level of consciousness. This gives us a likely prognosis and helps us choose those interventions that will be most beneficial.
Specialist Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Programme
Our team of specialists includes experts in management and rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries. We treat complex spinal dysfunction, whether from traumatic injury, malignant and non-malignant tumours, or degenerative spinal disease. The team treats patients needing spinal deformity correction and management of spasticity with injections. We’re also able to help with the assessment and management of neuropathic pain, fatigue and dysfunction.
Functional Restoration Programme (FRP)
Our FRP team provides interdisciplinary assessment and treatment for patients with longstanding pain. The key goal of the FRP is to restore function in everyday activities. We work with patients to put together a personalised programme of care to help improve functioning and overcome barriers.
