Community Neuro-rehabilitation and Stroke services

Date: July – August 2019


We are working to improve services for patients who need Neuro-Rehabilitation following discharge from hospital. At the moment there are 3 different teams that provide services:

  1. The Community Stroke Team
  2. The Clinical Neuropsychology Team
  3. The Community Neuro-rehabilitation Team

These teams have different staff that provide specialist advice, support and /or Neuro-rehabilitation for patients and families.

We want to bring these teams together (integrate them) so they start working as one big team.

We believe this change will help us improve the following areas:

  1. Reduce waiting times – see patients quicker
  2. Improve the discharge process from hospital
  3. Remove the need for referrals between teams – more seamless care
  4. All staff working towards the same goals
  5. Make services more resilient – better manage staff absence and cover

We are sharing our proposal and want to get feedback from patients, residents, carers and staff. We have an Easy Read version of the information available below.
