The Wellington Hospital
Treating patients with complex neurological injuries and conditions affecting the brain and nervous system, they have been awarded three years’ accreditation by CARF, a globally recognised independent body that evaluates standards in rehabilitation around the world. Personalised programmes mean patients can quickly get back on the road to recovery.
They care for patients with a range of neurological conditions:
• Traumatic brain injury
• Spinal cord injury
• Multiple sclerosis
• Parkinson’s disease
• Guillain-Barre syndrome
Alongside the expertise of specialist medical and nursing care, they can also offer patients immediate access to intensive care units – giving them complete peace of mind that their every need will be taken care of.
Bringing 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 – they’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, they specialise in the rehabilitation of patients with stroke and traumatic brain injury. A fully integrated advanced technology and intensive treatment within comprehensive care pathways also enable us to provide the following:
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, the 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.
A team of specialists includes experts in management and rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries. They 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. They are also able to help with the assessment and management of neuropathic pain, fatigue and dysfunction.
An 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.
