Some bed availability

Nottingham Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Neurological Care Centre

Located in Hucknall, on the outskirts of historic Nottingham, we’re here for people who have conditions such as acquired or traumatic brain injury, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and spinal injury.

We also look after people who need tracheostomy care, enteral feeding and assisted ventilation. We can arrange for people in low states of arousal to have SMART (Sensory Modality Assessment and Rehabilitation Technique) assessment too.

There are three interconnecting buildings on our site, known as Rosewood, Fernwood and Millwood. During their stay, clients are encouraged to make decisions about their care and life at the centre.  We encourage all our clients to be as independent as possible.

In February 2018, CQC rated our Nottingham Millwood service as "good" across all five domains.

"People were supported by staff who were empathetic and showed a good knowledge of their preferences and choices... Staff respected people's rights to privacy and treated them with dignity...People received individualised care and were supported to have a social life and to follow their interests" (CQC, February 2018)

Care at Nottingham Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Neurological Care Centre

Slow Stream Rehabilitation

Our slow stream rehabilitation service is suitable for people who need a longer period of less intense rehabilitation. It is suitable for those who need time to practise newly learnt skills in a a variety of everyday situations before returning to live at home.

We can also organise assessment for people in low states of awareness using SMART (Sensory Modality Assessment and Rehabilitation Technique) assessment.

Complex Disability Management

This service is for people who have problems associated with a brain injury or neurological condition and who cannot be looked after at home, usually because of the high level of nursing care they need.

The focus is on providing relief from pain, discomfort and stress and is all about improving a client's everyday quality of life. Most clients have either severe and far-reaching disabilities or may be in the later stages of a progressive neurological condition.

Respite Care

This service is available to people with a brain injury or neurological condition who live at home but who could benefit from a short stay in a specialist centre.

It also offers a much-needed break for families and carers and is an opportunity for individuals to have their needs reassessed.
