Our specialist community neuro-rehabilitation team aims to help you to be as independent as possible following a stroke, brain injury or other neurological condition such as multiple sclerosis.
Our team will usually come and see you in your home. For Lambeth residents who are able to attend their appointment, we are able to offer outpatient facilities at the Pulross Centre, but we can also see patients in any community setting, for example leisure centre, gym, park, college or a café.
We will work with you to:
- improve your movement, general mobility and fitness (physiotherapy)
- manage everyday tasks, such as washing and dressing, cooking, coping with memory difficulties (occupational therapy)
- improve your ability to communicate through speech or other means, and manage any eating or drinking difficulties (speech and language therapy)
support you and your family to understand more about your condition, explore memory, attention, planning and organising, and help you cope with anxiety and depression (neuropsychology).
Our service aims to provide neuro-rehabilitation to adults aged 16 years and over in Lambeth and Southwark. It includes three pathways of specialist community-based neuro-rehabilitation; stroke, neuro-conditions and neuro rehabilitation enhanced transition team (NETT).
At the Pulross Centre, there is an inpatient six bedded neuro-rehabilitation 2B service. The team provides inpatient specialist neuro-rehabilitation for patients registered with GPs within the south east London boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich, Bromley and Bexley.
Our department also has a specialist neuro navigation service which supports patients with complex neurological rehabilitation needs to access the right service for them, at the right time
All the neuro-rehabilitation teams work closely together with patients, transferring seamlessly between pathways if appropriate.
Our teams have been nationally recognised for working closely with local hospitals and social services. These teams ensure a smooth and timely discharge from hospital and offer rehabilitation at home following a stroke or other neurological condition.
