Woodlands Neurological Rehabilitation Centre is a purpose-built facility with 27 en-suite bedrooms and a two-bedroom self-contained transitional living flat. The team delivers high-quality and intensive neurological rehabilitation; physical, cognitive, functional and vocational assessments; behavioural management and complex disability assessments for adults.

We support patients with acquired brain injury, traumatic brain injury, severe neurological conditions, complex stroke and spinal cord injury. We can undertake SMART assessments for patients with Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness (PDoC) and create bespoke treatment plans.

The interdisciplinary team is led by Dr Marina Platts, Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine. Patients benefit from access to our neuro-specialist team consisting of a Junior Doctor, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Neuropsychologists, Physiotherapists, Therapy Technicians, specialist Nurses and Rehabilitation Assistants.

Specialist Nurses are able to provide care to those with ongoing neurological nursing needs including respiratory and tracheostomy care, diabetes, epilepsy, wound management, stoma care, enteral feeding and management of long term intravenous access points. 

We receive input from other professions allied to medicine, including dietetics, orthotics, podiatry, wheelchair services and music therapy.

Through our person-centred and evidence-based approach to rehabilitation, we aim to maximise independence and recovery whilst equipping people with the skills to return home or to a supported environment. 

Individuals and their family work with the MDT (multi-disciplinary team) to set goals around their physical progress, functional abilities, future independence, leisure and work activities and communication. 

We’re committed to raising standards and improving outcomes for our patients and have put in place a range of measures to establish a robust and integrated Quality & Governance strategy. 

Conditions we support, but are not limited to:

  • Brain injury
  • Spinal injury
  • Stroke
  • Progressive neurological conditions
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Neurological rehabilitation
  • Cognitive rehabilitation
  • Longer term complex care
