New unit for brain and spinal injuries
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.
