Acute neurological rehabilitation

At our Acute Rehabilitation Centre, we treat patients with complex neurological injuries and conditions affecting the brain and nervous system. We treat patients who have had a stroke or sustained a traumatic head injury, but also patients who have many other complex neurological injuries and conditions affecting the brain and nervous system. 


Having access to a wide range of medical specialties and acute care here on-site – including critical care – enables us to admit patients soon after injury or diagnosis. We are able to support patients with tracheostomies and also patients who need support with tube feeding.

 

A comprehensive approach to rehabilitation care

SCI programme

Specialist Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Programme

Our specialists can treat spinal cord dysfunction from a traumatic injury, tumour or degenerative spinal disease. This also includes treating patients who require spinal deformity correction and management of spasticity with muscle-relaxing injections. We also assess and manage neuropathic pain, fatigue and dysfunction.

PDOC unit

Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness Unit (PDOC)

The prolonged disorders of consciousness unit is a specialist service which provides expert care for people who have recovered from a coma and have not regained consciousness. Working closely with our award winning intensive care unit, we’re the only private unit of its kind in the UK linking clinical research, practice and clinical excellence to ensure the best care for our patients.

Functional Neurological Disorder Programme

Functional Neurological Disorder Programme

FND is a common cause of neurological symptoms. These can be very diverse and may affect movement, sensation and cognition. Our specialist team, led by Dr Mike Dilley and Professor Mark Edwards, offer holistic assessments and a tailored programme.

Meaningful goals

94% of patients

resident in the UK were discharged on their estimated discharge date

Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness Unit

A prolonged disorder of consciousness is when a person is no longer in a coma but remains in a state of altered consciousness for more than four weeks after an injury. It is essential for patients to receive specialist support through this process so patients have every chance of optimising their recovery.

“We’ve made extraordinary breakthroughs in understanding the life of people trapped in a realm of minimal consciousness in recent years, and we have the functional magnetic resonance imaging scanner (FMRI) to thank for that.”

Research and development in rehabilitation

In collaboration with the University of Birmingham, the PDOC unit at The Wellington Hospital is embarking on a research project which aims to assess the potential for a non-invasive form of electrical brain stimulation, known as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). The aim is to modulate the activity of the brain regions that control movement, and increase motor responsiveness as a result. By combining tDCS with neuroimaging and using advanced analysis methods, our research team will be able to increase our understanding of the relationship between the different brain regions involved in movement. 

 

The final goal of this research is to develop effective and readily available interventions to increase responsiveness in patients in prolonged disorders of consciousness.
