New unit for brain and spinal in­juries

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

ROAD ac­ci­dent vic­tims, pa­tients with MS and stroke vic­tims will all re­ceive the best care thanks to a new unit at Mount Ver­non Hos­pi­tal.

The 16-bed Daniels Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Unit for brain and spinal in­juries has opened at the hos­pi­tal in Rick­mansworth Road, North­wood.

He­len Parr, Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Ther­apy man­ager, said: “Pa­tients may come to us via the ma­jor trauma cen­tre once they have been sta­bilised – from other acute hos­pi­tals and stroke units, or oc­ca­sion­ally from home if they are liv­ing with a long-term neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tion.”

The new unit will support the work of its sis­ter unit, the Alder­bourne Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Unit, at Hilling­don Hos­pi­tal in Pield Heath Road, Hilling­don.
