Murdostoun Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Neurological Care Centre

At Murdostoun Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Neurological Care Centre, we rehabilitate, treat, care and support people over 16 with brain injuries and neurological conditions.

Within the grounds of the historical Murdostoun Castle in the heart of the Scottish countryside, our patients come to us for our intense rehabilitation services following a brain injury, and for our transitional, independent living services, which help them get back to living at home or into a community-based setting.  Our brain injury centre is regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland.  Their latest inspection report, published in November 2017, rated our service as "good" overall with a "very good" rating for quality of information.  To view the report in full, please click below:

We also look after people who have conditions such as acquired brain injury, traumatic brain injury, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and spinal injury.  This service is regulated and inspected by the Care Inspectorate.  Our last inspection took place in July 2017 and our service was rated as "good" across all domains.

Care at Murdostoun Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Neurological Care Centre

Specialist Rehabilitation

We provide assessment and intensive rehabilitation for patients with brain injuries and other neurological conditions. We treat people who no longer need the high level of nursing or medical care provided by an NHS hospital but would benefit from a short but intensive period of rehabilitation.

Slow Stream Rehabilitation

This is for people who have already undergone rehabilitation or who wouldn't gain the maximum benefit from a short, intense rehabilitation programme. Slow stream rehabilitation is designed for patients who need time to practise new skills before moving to a community-based setting or home.

Complex Disability Management

The focus is on providing relief from pain, discomfort or stress and is all about improving a patient's everyday quality of life. Most patients have either severe and far-reaching disabilities or may be in the later stages of a progressive neurological condition. We can also provide respite care to give families and carers a much needed break.
