The Neuro-rehabilitation unit, the Taylor Ward, at Leigh Infirmary helps people who have serious brain injuries and other neurological injuries and illnesses to continue their recovery after they no longer need urgent medical attention.
It is part of the Greater Manchester Neuro-rehabilitation service and offers its service to patients from Wigan Borough, Bolton and sometimes wider.
The staff at this unit are specialists and do an excellent job of providing this vital service to patients.
Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust have run this part of the Greater Manchester service from Leigh Infirmary for a number of years. However, whilst the unit offers high quality care to patients, it doesn’t meet the agreed Greater Manchester standards for this type of service as it doesn’t have ready access to facilities to treat patients in need of emergency care. Therefore it is no longer right to keep the unit at Leigh Infirmary.
Wigan Borough Clinical Commissioning Group and Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) jointly fund the service and will continue to fund it so the service can be available for all those who need it.
We are in the process of exploring where we might be able to put the service in the future and will soon launch a public consultation asking patients and residents what they think.
Our Governing Body meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Everybody is welcome to attend these meetings and it is really important to us that people do. Sometimes there are items which must be discussed in private due to confidentiality; these items are heard after the public (open) meeting finishes.
