Specialist brain injury rehabilitation and neurological support.

Murdostoun Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Neurological Care Centre is located in Newmains, Wishaw. We are proud to run neurorehabilitation program with one of the longest traditions in Scotland.

Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre

This service is suitable for people who require specialist inpatient rehabilitation to address their ongoing cognitive, communication, physical or other diminished functions due to injury or disease of nervous system.

Our team of highly-skilled rehab professionals work closely together to ensure every team member is working towards the same patient-centred goals and that all therapies are focused on the areas that will enable patients to achieve those relevant, clearly defined and agreed goals.

Our experienced multi-disciplinary team includes nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists and a consultants in neurology, rehabilitation medicine, and psychiatry. Our multi-disciplinary teams are experienced in managing associated needs, such as specialist spasticity management, tracheostomy care, PEG feeds and skin integrity problems.

We most commonly assess and admit patients who are in the very early stages of recovery from a brain injury from an NHS hospital. We also assess and treat people who have been living with a brain injury for some time, but due to a change in their situation, would benefit from some treatment or require a period of respite.

We cooperate closely with expert from other health institutions and primary care health and social teams.
