About rehabilitation

At HCA Healthcare UK we have the largest private hospital-based rehabilitation centre in the country, located in St John's Wood, London at The Wellington Hospital. The centre is CARF accredited, and has more than 60 rooms designed specifically for neurological rehabilitation patients aged over 18. In a separate centre at The Portland Hospital, we offer paediatric rehabilitation.

Both centres work with a range of neurological conditions including stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, encephalitis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and Guillian-Barre syndrome. 

We aim to help patients achieve optimal recovery and well-being through a personalised rehabilitation programme, tailored to support the individual and their family. Each rehabilitation centre is supported by an intensive care unit and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment on-site to give full support to patients who need complex inpatient rehabilitation.

Clinical expertise in rehabilitation

Our consultants are at the forefront of medicine in neurological rehabilitation. 

Rehab Unit Care

Multidisciplinary team care

Each of our rehabilitation centres at The Wellington and The Portland Hospital benefit from the expertise of multidisciplinary teams (MDT). This ensures we are able to offer our patients the full breadth of services required to assist with their road to recovery.


With consultants, clinical nurses and support staff specialising in areas as wide-ranging as neurophysiotherapy, neuropsychology, speech, language and music therapy, and with access to leading dieticians and occupational therapists, we are perfectly placed to tailor rehabilitation care to the needs of each individual patient.
