Helping our patients regain control of their lives
Extensive experience of all injury types
Our specialist neurology consultants and surgeons provide treatment for all acute and chronic neurological conditions, including:
- head, brain and spinal injuries
- multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders
- epilepsy, including complex epilepsy
- cerebral vasculitis
- neuromuscular disorders
As one of the biggest neuroscience centres in the UK, we have the experience and specialisms to support patients with both common and rare types of brain injury, from acute trauma and stroke to neurodegenerative conditions. We also have one of the UK’s largest neuroinflammatory centres for the treatment of conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and vasculitis.
As Charing Cross Hospital is designated as the hyper acute stroke unit for north west London, we have the ability to effectively treat patients at any point in their recovery. Although the earlier support is given for stroke or traumatic brain injury, the better the likely outcome, we are still able to treat patients at any point after the initial trauma. Our support can make all the difference to neurological function and subsequent quality of life.
For those with extreme trauma we have a specialist intensive care unit available, which provides a seamless transition from acute services to rehabilitation over the course of treatment.
Our acute specialist neurological rehabilitation service provides 24-hour care with an integrated team of consultants and therapists.
Fast tracked assessment
Our patients are all seen by one of our world-class consultants within 24 hours of admission, with a complete medical review completed within 72 hours. We provide a complete medical report within one week of admission which is updated fortnightly to ensure the best path for progress.
An individualised treatment path
Our therapy team will create an appropriate therapy programme focused on unique recovery needs. They will advise patients on how to adapt to their disability and safely carry out everyday tasks in order to lead an independent life.
