These units provide multidisciplinary rehabilitation for patients with neurological and other complex conditions.

Daniel’s Rehabilitation Unit, established in 2014, is a 16-bed, level two rehabilitation unit, and is also currently based at Hillingdon Hospital. The combined Hillingdon Specialist Rehabilitation Service admits patients from Northwest London (NWL) and adjoining areas and operate a joint referral, assessment, and admission process as well as a single waiting list.

We work closely with Charing Cross Neurorehabilitation Unit (CNRU), having shared protocols, staff, and policies: CNRU provides inpatient services for up to 15 patients across the NWL sector with an additional four virtual beds within the tri-borough community neuro rehabilitation service.

Our aims

  • goal-orientated holistic care - involving patient, family and carers
  • a high quality, empathetic service to all
  • evidence-based service in line with local and national standards
  • co-ordination of a timely discharge to an appropriate discharge destination with ongoing needs/care plan identified

Staff and facilities

Our multidisciplinary team consists of consultants in rehabilitation medicine, consultant neurologists, junior doctors, clinical psychologist, a clinical nurse specialist in MS and rehabilitation, rehabilitation nurses and health care assistants, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, dietetics, and therapy assistant practitioners.

Both units have fully equipped gyms with a secure entry and exit system.

We have links with allied specialities including rheumatology, gastroenterology, surgery, urology, palliative care, neurology and neuroradiology, acute and chronic pain as well as liaison psychiatry. The Alderbourne and Daniels Rehabilitation Unit has access to 24/7 acute medical, on-call cover, as well as radiology, pathology, intensive care, and a critical care outreach team.

As such, patients who are likely to require complex medical interventions over weekends and evenings can be admitted to the Alderbourne and Daniels Rehabilitation Unit (this includes tracheostomy patients).
