Description

What is this service?

The Bristol Community Health Specialist Community Neurology Service is led by a range of healthcare professionals who support patients with a neurological impairment. Our service can provide physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and psychological support with the support of therapy assistants to those with a neurological diagnosis.

This service was created by combining existing teams, including occupational therapy, domiciliary physiotherapy and the Disabled Adults Resource Team (DART).

What does this service offer?

Our service offers an assessment and discussion of your current needs, and will work with you to provide goal-led treatment using shared decision making principles. Our specially trained occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, speech and language therapists and rehabilitation assistants can work with you on any aspect of your health and daily activities that are most important to you.

We can see you in your home or at another address, and will make a thorough assessment to ensure that we can advise appropriate treatment, make suitable adaptations and offer equipment that may help. We will offer support and advice for as long as it takes to reach agreed achievable targets, and we will be available beyond this point should you need to get in touch.

Who is the service for?

Anyone over the age of 18 who is registered with a GP can access this service. It is appropriate for anyone with a neurological impairment, including peripheral neuropathies (damage to nerves of the peripheral nervous system) and spinal conditions.
