Service

Integrated rehabilitation service

Our integrated rehabilitation service provides rehabilitation after an illness or injury for adults registered with a Somerset GP. We generally see patients with a wide variety of physical and cognitive problems which affect their ability to carry out normal daily activities. Our patients may have health conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis or other ongoing health problems. We also see frail patients, those living with life limiting illnesses, or those who have had an accident or injury.

We work with our patients in their own homes, where they recover faster and where they prefer to be. We can also support patients who otherwise would be taken in to hospital. We support patients coming home from hospital too so they can recover at home.

Our teams are made up of an occupational therapist, physiotherapists, rehabilitation assistants and pharmacy technicians. All qualified staff are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and are trained in assessing and managing a range of medical conditions.

If you are referred to our service, we will discuss and assess your health problem. Then we will help you plan your goals for treatment.

We accept referrals from you, your carer, friend or family member, or your GP. You can phone the contact number for your area.
