  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury

However, there are a variety of other people with neurological conditions who may benefit from the team, GPs can call to discuss individual patients cases.

In addition, the team offers a brain injury educational group programme for people who have suffered brain injuries.

The service develops a tailored plan for each patient, after detailed assessments from relevant members of the neurorehabilitation team. Therapy can be delivered with individuals or in groups.

Occupational therapy may include practising everyday tasks and education as well as the use of memory aids and the provision of adaptive equipment or splints to help maintain range of movement.

Physiotherapy can help patients regain as much mobility, muscle control and co-ordination as possible.  Speech and language therapy assists with communication and/or swallowing problems.

The service is available at the Broad Green Centre, in patients’ homes or the local community dependent individual needs.
