Consultation launched on proposals to ‘transform’ specialist rehabilitation services for NHS patients in the East Midlands

NHS commissioners in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are asking patients, families and carers for their views on proposals to create a £70 million NHS Rehabilitation Centre on the Stanford Hall Rehabilitation Estate, near Loughborough.

The proposed centre would create a centre of excellence, part of a future vision for a National Rehabilitation Centre.

As part of the consultation, the public are asked for their views on transferring existing rehabilitation services from Linden Lodge at Nottingham City Hospital to the new centre, alongside the creation of new services.

According to the British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine there is currently a shortage of beds for specialist rehabilitation in the East Midlands. The development of a new centre will increase access to more rehabilitation beds and all the services and staff patients need under one roof.

The opportunity will mean that in-patient rehabilitation services will be available in the East Midlands for the first time for individuals that have had complex injuries or who need intensive rehabilitation after a period of serious illness. Currently, in-patient rehabilitation is available in the region for neurological patients only.

The consultation will run from 27 July through to 18 September 2020.

A series of online consultation engagement events organised by Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will take place to ensure the public can find out more and express their views. More information, including details on how to join the events, is available at www.nottsccg.nhs.uk/rehab-centre-consultation/​.

The CCG also welcomes views from people who cannot join events and have set up an online survey which can be accessed at the following link.

Amanda Sullivan, Accountable Officer, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG, added:

“This is an exciting opportunity for the NHS to transform rehabilitation services in our area, increase specialist bed capacity and provide access to excellent facilities and the latest equipment and technology to support patients in their rehabilitation journey. We would very much like to hear people’s views on this opportunity.”
