The Rehabilitation Centre, Rehabilitation at Home

 

Our Rehabilitation Centre is currently on pause due to Coronavirus restrictions. In the meantime, our new Rehabilitation at Home service which takes place over the phone and video calls, is fully open.

Please get in touch about all rehabilitation services if you’re a survivor, or to refer patients if you’re a health worker. Despite the current Coronavirus situation, we can still give support, start assessments for the in-person Centre stay, as well as tailor a programme that can be delivered through Rehabilitation at Home.

 Who can use the services?

The services are for adults of any gender, who have a burn injury, or an injury which has left you with significant scars.

Services have been designed to help the journey of rehabilitation once emergency and acute care has been completed with NHS burns services, you may still be attending out-patient appointments. You can discuss the future with us while you are still in hospital.

Contact us to talk through which services are right for you at this time or in the future.

How does it work?

All survivors will have a tailored programme of scar management, specialist physiotherapy, survivor to survivor support, goal focused activities and well-being. It will be designed with you at the heart of it and in consultation with your existing networks, including your NHS burns team.

For survivors best suited to a stay at the Rehabilitation Centre we recommend a stay of multiple weeks, typically a month. This is paired with support over video and phone calls either side of the stay.

For survivors best suited to Rehabilitation at Home, you’ll have a bespoke package working with specialists over the phone and video calls, as well as developing an independent plan of goal-focussed activities.  This is likely to last for two to four months.
