Outpatient Therapy in Queen Square
A team of highly specialist therapists from the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN) have established a new private outpatient therapy service for people with neurological and neurosurgical conditions.
The team comprises of highly specialist physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists with extensive experience in the area of neurology. Physiotherapy is available immediately, with occupational therapy and speech and language therapy services being introduced in the coming months.
The team will offer seamless multi-disciplinary assessment and intervention, implementing current guidelines and evidenced based practice. Being based in the Private Consulting rooms at Queen Square allows close working both within the team and with other specialists in Queen Square. This helps to ensure that patients are offered the opportunity to access specialist services from which they may benefit.
