Clinical specialist physiotherapists and occupational therapists

Clinical specialist physiotherapists and occupational therapists are advanced practitioners who are experts in the assessment, treatment and management of people with stroke and complex neurological conditions. We are able to support people with complex hospital discharges and repatriation following acquired brain or spinal injury.

We provide personalised therapy, advice and condition management for people with extensive physical, cognitive, behavioural, psychological and emotional impairments as a result of stroke or progressive neurological conditions.

We will provide a detailed assessment of your needs and work with you, your family, carers and other health and social care services to ensure the best possible outcome to enable you to move forward and manage your condition. We will provide you with a care plan which is person centred, evidence based and goal directed for a targeted episode of care.

The clinical specialist therapists are able to help you if as a result of your stroke or neurological condition you:

  • experience pain
  • have significant problems with your physical mobility as a result of muscle tonal problems such as stiffness or paralysis
  • have difficulty with your posture or achieving a comfortable position
  • have difficulty with balance or dizziness
  • find it difficult to concentrate or remember things
  • have problems with your vision
  • have problems with dealing with emotional changes
  • feel tired or fatigued
  • feel overwhelmed by simple tasks
  • have concerns about returning to work

We will also provide training, education and on-going advice to people, their families and carers and well as other health and social care professionals. The neurological rehabilitation and stroke therapy service is a research active team delivering clinical research locally in collaboration with research teams and higher education establishments.
