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:

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.

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.
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.
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.
Thank you so much for all the fantastic work you are doing with my mum which has got her to this point.
We are fully aware that dad has been challenging. Despite this you worked tirelessly to ensure he had an individual plan of therapy which helped him to engage and make a significant improvement.
The staff have all been wonderful. I have been made so welcome. If ever I need anything, it's there. I have been supported 100%.
I am very happy with all the staff who do a fantastic job, and they do it really well. They treat me with total respect and know we are all different and all at different stages.
Independence and choice
Our patients are encouraged to be as independent as possible and make individual choices about all aspects of life at Murdostoun. Patients, friends and family are actively involved in setting goals and planning throughout their time at the centre.
Our general manager Jim Loudon leads a team of consultants, psychologists, psychiatrists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, personal activity leaders (PALs) and specialist nurses, assistants and support staff.
