The Community Neuro Service (CNS) Is a multidisciplinary team, comprising of physiotherapy, occupational therapy speech and language therapy and psychology. The team specialises in rehabilitation and management for people who have a neurological condition, including stroke. Therapy is provided in the patients’ own home or in an appropriate community location.

The service provides specialist, coordinated advice and treatment to maximise independence, limit disease progression, reduce hospital admissions and facilitate smooth transition home following a hospital discharge.

The CNS also provides a modified Early Supported Discharge (ESD) service. The ESD service is stroke specific rehabilitation provided in the patient’s home where the level of rehabilitation provided is comparable to inpatient rehabilitation provision.

The ESD pathway provides a seamless transfer of care from hospital to home and allows patients to continue intensive rehabilitation in the home environment for a period of 2 weeks.
