QEF’s Neuro Rehabilitation Service (NRS) works closely with the NHS and case managers to provide expert neuro rehabilitation for people with acquired brain injuries, neurological illness, stroke or incomplete spinal injury; enabling people to regain key skills and rebuild their lives. Our multi-disciplinary team of specialist nurses, therapists and support workers provide an integrated service; enabling clients to maximise their independence and build a brighter future.
This expert service has just moved into a fantastic new Care and Rehabilitation Centre that has been purpose built over the last few years to meet the needs of QEF’s service users. Registered with the CQC, this new centre is based just outside Leatherhead in Surrey. Contact details are available here
We have opened the ground floor of this new centre, so NRS clients can now benefit from new therapy and accommodation facilities, with bright and airy rooms creating a modern yet homely environment.
Facilities include comfortable bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms and some with kitchenettes.
Therapy areas are light and well equipped, so our therapy teams can work with more clients to enable each person to achieve their best possible individual outcomes. This includes a large spacious physiotherapy gym with two hoist systems, as well as several adaptable therapy rooms for speech and language, occupational therapy and clinical psychology teams.
The centre has been specifically designed to meet the needs of QEF’s clients, so there are lots of communal spaces such as dining rooms, activities rooms, break out spaces and a training kitchen.
The Care and Rehabilitation Centre is located between Leatherhead and Stoke D’Abernon and benefits from the beautiful surrounding Surrey countryside. There are large outdoor spaces that are fully accessible, including a private garden to the rear of the building.
QEF’s ‘Survive and Thrive’ Appeal
As a result of a significant drop in voluntary income due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have not been able to open the Care and Rehabilitation Centre as originally planned. Instead a partial opening means that only ground floor accommodation is currently open. Additional funding is needed to finish equipping the first floor. This is part of QEF’s Survive and Thrive Appeal – raising vital funds to help our services survive the financial impact of this pandemic, so we can continue to enable disabled people to thrive.
