We work closely with the NHS, personal injury solicitors and case managers across the UK, providing neuro rehabilitation for adults with physical, cognitive and/or communication disabilities which may also include mild to moderate behavioural problems. 

We work closely with families and everyone involved with an individual's long term rehabilitation, helping them with the transition out of our service.

Working with the NHS 

We work in partnership with NHS acute and primary care trusts to facilitate neuro rehabilitation and nursing care in a specialist integrated centre just outside Leatherhead, Surrey. We currently work NHS Hampshire, NHS SW London, NHS Surrey Heartlands, NHS East and West Sussex, Ealing CCG, Lambeth CCG and Newham CCG. Clients have access to our unique concentration of specialist therapies and nursing care as part of their rehabilitation journey. Working with the Early Supported Discharge, Community and Re-enablement teams as required, we then facilitate their discharge home or to another suitable destination to continue their rehabilitation.  

"QEF has exemplified how organisations have stepped up throughout the (pandemic) period, providing care and rehabilitation to patients who’ve suffered strokes or seizures or other brain injuries." Professor Stephen Powis, National Medical Director, NHS England

"I commend you for paying attention not just to their physical needs in their underlying condition, but the fact that you have been able to keep them safe and secure, and that only comes with the greatest of attention and personal endeavour and thank you very much for it."
Dr. Yvonne Doyle, Medical Director and Director for Health protection, Public Health England

• Improved continuity of care
• Facilitates team working
• Facilitates communication with families and carers
• Improved access to appropriate services
• Value for money in service provision
