Are you coming to the Assessment and Rehabilitation Unit?
The Centre, based on a beautiful 60 acre rural campus, provides medical, assessment, rehabilitation, care and education for children and young people whose lives have been adversely affected by epilepsy and other neurological conditions, including acquired brain injury resulting from accident and illness. Working with children and young people at an early stage using a range of therapy techniques – an
interdisciplinary approach – is key to reducing the long-term impact of these conditions.
Young Epilepsy works in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Trust (GOSH) and the Institute of Child Health (ICH). This means that we can draw on the unique expertise of professional staff from each organisation to provide a high standard of services for young people with the benefit of the latest medical research. The Assessment and Rehabilitation Unit is located within the Neville Childhood Epilepsy Centre and is registered with the Care Quality Commission.
The unit provides in-patient interdisciplinary assessments and rehabilitation packages for children and young people aged between 3 and 19. The service currently operates 39 weeks of the year, in line with school terms. Separate residential accommodation is provided for parents.
