Nurse and therapy-led reablement service

 
Our 12-bedded unit is led by nurses and therapists and provides excellent clinical and therapeutic care. We aim to support patients in managing their own health conditions, improving wellbeing and restoring functionality, supporting self-care, and to provide links with their individual community health services. This service is for people who have been assessed as being medically fit and are ready to leave acute hospital or other care.

Care and therapy is provided on the unit by clinicians, therapists, care and therapy assistants. There is a senior nurse reablement practitioner/care coordinator on the unit from Monday to Sunday, who will support the coordination of care with medical cover being provided by a local GP service.
