Our rehabilitation centre

The Wellington Hospital's Acute Rehabilitation Centre is the largest private centre in the UK. Designed specifically 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, and we pride ourselves on helping our patients through some of the most critical points in their lives.

Neurology Rehab editorial summary

Your path to recovery starts here

From the moment our patients arrive in our specialist centre we’re by your side, supporting you from assessment, through treatment and aftercare plans. As well as specialist medical and nursing care, we also offer all patients immediate access to our intensive care units.

We care for patients with a range of neurological conditions, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, acquired brain injuries, encephalitis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and Guillain-Barre syndrome.
Rehab team structure

Care centred around you

The way we come together as a team of experts means we can offer the highest quality of care to patients from all over the world. We bring together world-leading experts from a range of specialisms to work together as a multidisciplinary team (MDT), centred around the patient’s rehabilitation needs. 

Your personalised team may include consultants, specialist nurses, physiotherapists, neuropsychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and more. 
 

Sophie's recovery story

Your goalposts move quite quickly, as soon as you can do something you want more.
Sophie Shane

Patient from our Acute Rehabilitation Centre

On July 26th 2017, Sophie’s world changed forever. Sophie suffered a rare spinal cord stroke and was cared for by our team for more than six months before returning home.

Outpatient therapy services

Dieticians

You can expect nutritional treatment and practical guidance for a range of medical conditions, based on the latest scientific research. Personalised treatment plans can include specific dietary advice, nutritional supplements and support with artificial feeding methods such as nasogastric tube feeding.

Neurologic Music Therapy

Our Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) service is a research-based system of standardised clinical techniques for sensorimotor training, speech and language training, and cognitive training. NMT treatment plans are fully adapted to each patient’s functional goals.

Neuro physiotherapy

Our neuro-physiotherapists specialise in the assessment and treatment of physical impairments, including motor function and spasticity. A programme is designed that meets the specific needs and goals of each patient and maximises their independence.

Occupational therapy

We support patients in relearning activities or finding new ways of doing them – whether that’s with environmental adaptations or specialist therapy equipment. We also cover postural management, seating assessments, wheelchair prescription and specialist upper extremity rehabilitation.

Rehabilitation nursing

Our specialist nurses work as part of an interdisciplinary team to support rehabilitation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We help patients with neurological disabilities, or chronic illness to regain as much function as possible. We also help patients adapt to a new lifestyle, while providing a therapeutic and holistic environment for their ongoing development.

Speech and language therapy

Our specialist speech and language therapists treat speech, language, communication, voice and swallowing disorders. You can expect specialist diagnostic swallowing assessments, including videofluoroscopy (VFSS) and fibreopticendoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES).

Psychology services

Psychology services are provided by our neuro, clinical and health psychologists. Neuropsychologists assess and explain changes in thinking and behaviour that can result from injuries to the brain. The better patients understand these changes, the easier it becomes to work around them and compensate for them. We also offer therapy and support, helping patients and their families to gradually accept and cope with the changes in their lives.
Research Rehab

Research and development

Our Acute Rehabilitation Centre at The Wellington Hospital was represented at several conferences both in the UK and Internationally over 2017.

Several members of the clinical and administration teams gained additional knowledge on current best practice and up-to-date research, as well as offering them a valuable opportunity to meet stakeholders and peers.

The centre also had stands at the European Neurological Convention, UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum, Field Fisher Brain Injury and Technology Conferences; Rehab Week and Therapy Expo.

Meaningful goals

83% of our patients

who completed their rehabilitation programme achieved their goal of admission

Facility-PNIU-rehab-editorial-banner-955x641

Because only the best will do

Each of our treatment programmes is individually tailored and goal orientated. We discuss goals, expectations and achievements with you and your family on admission, regularly during the programme, and on discharge.


We measure all clinical outcomes using the Modified Barthel Index (MBI). MBI is an outcome measure used by the clinical team to measure everyday functions, such as mobility, going to the toilet, feeding and getting dressed. We record this measure on admission and discharge to measure progress.

A comprehensive approach to care

Specialised Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Programme

We treat complex spinal dysfunction, whether from traumatic injury, malignant and non-malignant tumours, or degenerative spinal disease. We’re also able to help with the assessment and management of neuropathic pain, fatigue and dysfunction.

Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness Unit (PDOC)

After a severe brain injury, conscious awareness of self and environment can be reduced, only returning in stages. We can treat this condition in our fully equipped intensive care unit.

Functional Restoration Programme (FPR)

Our FRP team provides interdisciplinary assessment and treatment for patients with longstanding pain, helping to restore function in everyday activities. We work closely with patients to put together a personalised programme of care for them.
