The Herts and Essex Community Hospital is situated in Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire. The Rehabilitation unit has 30 beds between two wards, Oxford and Cambridge. Four of these beds are designated Stroke Rehabilitation Beds that are supported by the East & North Herts Early Supported Stroke Discharge Team. The unit caters for patients who need rehabilitation following their stay in an acute setting or need some extra support from the community. The unit has its own occupational therapy and physiotherapy team with a gym and OT assessment room.
On admission, each patient is assessed by the multidisciplinary team and a plan of care is formalised involving the patient. The anticipated length of stay will differ from patient to patient depending on their individual needs. On average patients can expect to be on the unit for seven to 14 days.
