Our team includes clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech therapists and a neuro-navigator and provides specialist rehabilitation in community settings. We provide a range of assessments and treatments in groups and for individuals.

When referring please give comprehensive information about your patient's:

  • diagnosis
  • impairment (please be as specific as possible including any recent change in impairment)
  • function (please be as specific as possible including any recent change in function)
  • aim of referral/treatment
  • care needs

We can then screen the referral and ensure they are seen by the appropriate member(s) of the team.
