What does this service provide?

Who we are

We are a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals who provide assessment and therapy to patients with any neurological conditions.

Multi-disciplinary team: A multidisciplinary team (MDT) is a group of health and care professionals from one or more organisations who come together to discuss how best to care for you.

What we do

We are here to help patients living with a neurological diagnosis to maximise their independence and manage their condition.

Appointment information

Appointment types

We offer a variety of options, including home visits, telephone, and virtual appointments.

Who you'll see at your appointment

Our team is made up of therapists and support staff.

During your appointment you may see an occupational therapist, physiotherapist, stroke nurse, speech and language therapist or a therapy practitioner.

Where your appointment will be

We are community-based and see the majority of our patients in their homes for their first assessment.

Follow up visits will be agreed with you and may be conducted at your home or at other appropriate community locations (for example public gym facilities), over the telephone or a video call.

Preparing for your appointment

Our specialist coordinator will contact you to arrange an initial visit which is usually within your own home.

A member of the team will complete an assessment and support you to create a personalised plan to help you achieve your goals and manage your condition. Following the assessment, you may be given exercises, activities, or other treatments as part of your rehabilitation plan.

The number of times we see you is based on several factors, including your clinical need, your goals, and your progress.

What happens after my treatment or therapy plan ends?

We will provide you with advice on how to manage your condition once you are discharged and we may signpost you to community or online resources if appropriate.

If your circumstances change after you have been discharged, you can contact us and we will provide advice on the next steps.

How can I access this service?

We accept referrals for people with a confirmed neurological diagnosis who are registered with a GP in Arundel, Bognor Regis, Chichester, Midhurst, Petworth, Pulborough and Loxwood. Please get in touch with the service for an up-to-date referral form. See ‘who to contact for more information' for our details.

People previously known to the service, or their carers, can re-refer themselves for a review though we may ask for more information from a doctor.

We work closely with other community teams and sometimes it may be more appropriate for the referral to be directed elsewhere.
