At Blackheath Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre, we are specialists in the treatment of patients over the age of 18 with physical and cognitive impairments and/or neuropsychiatric disorders resulting from a brain injury or other neurological condition. We support our patients through assessment, rehabilitation, support and care across two wards.

There are two wards in our Blackheath site: Thames Brain Injury Rehabilitation Unit and Heathside Unit. Across the two wards we provide assessment, rehabilitation, support and care. 

Level 1 Regional Specialist Rehabilitation

This regional service is for people with complex cognitive and /or behavioural problems following a brain injury or as a result of a neurological condition. They have complex nursing and therapy needs requiring input from a highly specialist Inter-Disciplinary Team, and treatment facilities unlikely to be available locally.

Patients are usually in the very early stages of recovery from their brain injury and are usually admitted from an acute hospital once they are medically stable.

Level 2 Specialist Rehabilitation

This service is suitable for people who require specialist inpatient rehabilitation and have ongoing physical therapy needs.

Our team work closely together to ensure that every team member is working towards the same practical, realistic goals and that all therapies are focused on the areas that will enable patients to achieve those clearly defined and agreed goals.

Our team includes qualified nurses (RMN, RGN and RNLD), Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Clinical Psychologists, Social Workers and sessional visits from a Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine and a weekly GP ward round. The clinical team are fully supported by rehabilitation assistants and technicians, administrators, housekeeping and catering staff and a maintenance team.

Conditions we support, but are not limited to:

  • Acquired Brain Injury
  • Anoxic Brain Injury
  • Brain Tumour
  • Complex Stroke
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Inflammatory and infective conditions
  • Subarachnoid Haemorrhage
