Our Neuro-rehab Ward and staff have re-located to the West Berkshire Community Hospital where they will continue their care for this cohort of very vulnerable patients.
During the current climate of Wave 2 Covid-19 it is more appropriate for these patients to receive their intensive rehabilitation off-site from the acute hospital site.
The NRU ward will be based on Highclere Ward at the West Berkshire Community Hospital (WBCH) where the highly experienced multi professional team of clinicians will provide comprehensive rehabilitation support.
More information can be found here.
