The focus of rehabilitation is to enable people to live as independently as possible by maximising their clinical outcomes. The Cheshire and Merseyside Rehabilitation Network provides different levels of specialist rehabilitation care so the patient’s pathway can be tailored specifically for their individual needs. Rehabilitation is different for every person depending on individual injuries or illness and what stage they are at in recovery.
Patients are individually assessed and a rehabilitation programme is developed specific to their rehabilitation needs.
Patients on the rehabilitation units receive input from occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, dietetics and psychology, as indicated during their stay on the units. Orthoptists and orthotists provide a service on an individual referral basis.
