Our facilities

The unit has 14 intermediate care beds and six level 2B neuro-rehabilitation beds.

The intermediate care beds are nurse-led, offering care for adults with rehabilitation and/or nursing needs (for example to regain mobility after a fracture or an operation or to prevent admission to hospital from home following a fall). Care is supported by therapists, GPs and consultants in elderly care.

The level 2B neuro-rehabilitation beds are part of the south east London neuro rehabilitation service. They are consultant-led and offer specialist intensive rehabilitation for 6-12 weeks for people with a new onset or episode of a neurological injury or condition, that meets the referral criteria.
