Neurological Rehabilitation Centre at Edgware Community Hospital

Overview

The Royal Free Neurological Rehabilitation Centre (NRC) at Edgware Community Hospital provides specialist in-patient, out-patient and community rehabilitation and condition management services for adults with neurological conditions.

Our goal is to provide our service users with person-centred rehabilitation and support that enables them to regain skills and function to live as independently as possible.

We are a multidisciplinary team comprising of administrators, clinical neuro psychologists, dietitians, doctors, a multiple sclerosis specialist nurse, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists and support workers. We also work in collaboration with other health, social care and voluntary organisations.

Our NRC in-patient team will accept referrals for patients from North Central London (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, and Islington). Other referrals can be considered on a case by case basis.

Our community neurological conditions management team (CNCMT) will see people who meet the inclusion criteria that live in Barnet and have a GP within North Central London.

If you would like to speak to someone from our team please call us on 020 3758 2465.

 

Our service uses Care Opinion for feedback about the care and support we provide.
