A closer look at the services within our programmes

Our therapy service provides an opportunity for patients to undergo specialist neurological assessment and regular therapy in a gym environment. It is available both to newly diagnosed patients and those needing long-term support and rehabilitation.


At our centre, you can expect a comprehensive programme of outpatient care, tailored to the patient’s needs and delivered by an interdisciplinary team. You can take advantage of coordinated appointment times so that all your appointments are under the same roof.


You can also benefit from access to a specialist gym, hydrotherapy pool and therapy kitchen. Our personalised treatment programmes also include tailored home exercise and training for family and carers. All of our services are available on a tailored basis for both inpatients and outpatients.

Specialist nursing

Our specialist nurses work as part of an interdisciplinary team to support rehabilitation 24 hours a day, seven 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.

Neuro physiotherapy

Our neuro physiotherapists specialise in the assessment and treatment of physical impairments, including motor function and spasticity. We devise programmes which meet the specific needs and goals of each patient to help them achieve their independence again.

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.

Psychology services

Psychology services are provided by our neurological, clinical and health psychologists. Neuropsychologists assess and explain changes in thinking and behaviour that can result from injuries to the brain. We offer therapy, assessment and support, helping patients and their families to gradually accept and cope with the changes in their lives.

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 video fluoroscopy (VFSS) and fibreoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES).

Neurologic music therapy

Our neurologic music therapy (NMT) service provides specific help for patients affected by neurologic injury or disease. NMT treats the brain using standardised music and rhythm techniques to achieve non-musical goals such as improved speech, better physical movement or improved cognition. Our team of neurologic music therapists work closely with patients and their next of kin, as well as physiotherapists, nurses, and speech and language therapists.


At our centre 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.

Vestibular physiotherapy

Patients can benefit from specialist staff, trained in the treatment of vestibular disorders, who can comprehensively assess your balance needs. This may include using the latest diagnostic tools and therapies for the treatment of balance and vestibular disturbances such as the the SMART EquiTest Computerised Dynamic Posturography system. Dizziness occurs for many reasons and our physiotherapy team are able to deliver customised, effective exercise and treatment plans to meet your individual needs. Our concussion clinic also provides specialist assessment and treatment for ongoing dizziness and balance issues that can arise from concussion.

There are several therapy gyms with state-of-the-art equipment, including a hydrotherapy room. These enhance the programme and rehabilitation process.

How I helped a ballerina pirouette again

"As a vestibular physiotherapist in our centre, my role is to provide an exercise programme aimed at improving balance and reducing dizziness-related problems. Every day might start the same but the patients, their histories and their goals are always different!


One particularly memorable patient was a ballerina that came to me with an imbalance with her sensory-motor postural reflexes that control balance and coordination, affecting her ability to dance.


She was determined to overcome the disorder and challenged herself to perform the hardest move in ballet: a pirouette. Following vestibular rehabilitation involving a customised, exercise-based programme, she successfully achieved her goal – pirouetting again and again and again!”

Communication technology and its importance for speech and language patients

“For lots of my patients, their speech and language programme will involve some form of communication technology. For example, one of my patients can only use his eyes to communicate after suffering from a brain stem stroke. He understands everything going on around him but can’t speak and has no motor function in his legs and arms. To help him communicate, we have introduced him to a specialist high-tech eye gaze system, where he can communicate just by using his eyes.


Through this technology he is able to spell out messages and communicate with those around him. It also allows him to turn lights off and on, change the television channel, text and send emails.”
