Stroke Rehabilitation Unit


Ward 312 level 3 Royal Derby Hospital

About our service

Ward 312 is a 21 bedded unit providing complex rehabilitation for patients who have been diagnosed with a stroke. Patients are typically transferred onto the unit from the acute stroke unit or other medical wards once medically stable.

Rehabilitation is provided by the multi-disciplinary team including Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy. There is also if required assessment and intervention available from Dieticians and Psychology. Staff may refer to other health professionals as indicated.

Here on ward 312 the staff are very experienced and well aware of the effects that a stroke may have on an individual and their families. During the admission to the ward our aim is to devise realistic treatment goals together with you and your family in order to facilitate a safe discharge to either your home or an alternative residence if you require more support. These issues are discussed with you and your family during your time here.

The multi-disciplinary team have close connections with community services and the stroke support team. This allows us to provide a seamless service enabling you to continue to work towards your rehabilitation goals and address any problems that may arise when you are discharged from hospital.
