Specialist Rehabilitation

The specialist rehabilitation medicine service provides countywide inpatient, outpatient and community rehabilitation outreach services to adults with recent and long term physical disabilities. Rehabilitation is a whole team process provided in a variety of settings.

The inpatient service is Ashby ward at Lincoln County Hospital, a 12 bed purpose built rehabilitation unit.

The unit accepts patients with newly acquired neuro-disabilities and other forms of complex neurological disorders that require multi-disciplinary assessment and rehabilitation.

The patient will be supported to achieve their maximum potential for physical, cognitive, social and psychological function and quality living.

Consultant outpatient clinics are provided at a number of sites across Lincolnshire.

The rehabilitation medicine community outreach service includes a dietitian, specialist nurses, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech and language therapy. The teams are based at the four main hospitals and provide services either as outpatients or in the patient’s home.
