Greentrees Rehabilitation Unit – Update and change of location

Greentrees Rehabilitation Unit – Update and change of location

Haringey PCT commenced an NHS procurement process for the Rehabilitation Services currently provided on Chestnut Ward, St. Ann’s Hospital in June 2011. The purpose of this was to invite proposals from suitable parties to improve quality and value for money and secure access to specialist rehabilitation services.

The stroke element of this (Eight stroke rehabilitation beds) was awarded to the Homerton University Hospital, where in-patient rehabilitation for people who have had strokes will be provided on their specialist stroke Unit, Graham Ward at the Homerton. The unit will continue to receive referrals for, and offer a service to, Haringey patients who have had their acute treatment at the Royal Free Hospital, the North Middlesex University Hospital and at the Homerton. The unit will also liaise with the community services to plan continued care and rehabilitation on discharge to the community.

The stroke beds will transfer from Greentrees, St. Ann’s Hospital to Graham Ward, Homerton University Hospital in the week commencing 7 May 2012.
An information pack has been prepared for patients and their visitors who are currently on Greentrees Unit, providing all the information that they might need.

Non-stroke beds will continue to be provided by Whittington Health until the end of March 2013. The non-stroke beds will move to Cavell Ward, Whittington Hospital on 10th May 2012, where the same level of rehabilitation will be provided as a dedicated Rehabilitation Unit on a recently refurbished ward. Patients will continue to be under the current medical consultant, Dr. Nick Rollitt, from the North Middlesex University Hospital. The same criteria for admission and level of rehabilitation will continue to be provided to Haringey patients as at present.
