Community Neurological Rehabilitation Team
The Community Neurological Rehabilitation Team (CNRT) provides holistic assessment and management for adults with a confirmed diagnosis of long-term neurological conditions.
The service offers support throughout the disease process based on the individual’s needs.
The team consists of professionals from a range of disciplines including specialist nurses for Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Generic Workers, Clinical Psychologists and Rehabilitation Consultants. The different professionals in the CNRT work closely together to provide a joined-up interdisciplinary service and patients are seen in outpatient clinics, in the outpatient therapy gym or on home visits.
In addition, the team liaises closely with other teams within Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust such as Neurology, Wheelchair Services, District Nurses and Continence Services, as well as with specialist regional neurological services such as West Park Hospital and the West Midlands Rehabilitation Centre.
The service operates Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm.
The team is based at Short Heath Clinic which is where the majority of outpatient clinics and therapy sessions are held. The team also offers home visits, and some Multiple Sclerosis clinics are held at Walsall Manor Hospital.
