Integrated Neurological Services
After providing acute hospital care, the NHS can only fund limited support in the community for a few weeks for people with these conditions – after that people are left to cope on their own. Patients with neurological conditions have the lowest health related quality of life of any long-term condition. At INS we use a holistic approach to deliver a range of integrated clinical services and social and emotional therapeutic support. A key outcome of our services is to enable people to remain as active as possible to ensure that they stay engaged with their communities, do not become isolated from their social networks and to enable them to develop new connections that can support both their physical and emotional needs.
INS employs a multi-disciplinary team providing physiotherapy, occupational therapy (OT), speech and language therapy (SLT), and social work support. Other therapy, activities and administrative staff also form an essential part of the team, supported by experienced and dedicated volunteers including skilled counsellors.
