About the multi-disciplinary team

As well as nursing and medical staff, we have occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, dietitians, psychologists, pharmacists and rehabilitation assistants, all working together to provide the best care for each patient and their families and carers.

The team provides a full range of medical and therapy support to help patients return home and be as independent as possible.

Depending on their condition and abilities, patients work towards:

  • regaining everyday life skills
  • returning to independent living
  • managing their disability with a positive but realistic outlook
