Question Title

* 1. To help us understand your response better, please can you tell us if you are answering this questionnaire on behalf of…

Question Title

* 2. To what extent do you support or oppose the proposal to create a NHS Rehabilitation Centre at the Stanford Hall Estate near Loughborough?

Question Title

* 3. The NHS Rehabilitation Centre would provide 63 rehabilitation beds – an increase of 39 beds across the East Midlands. As a result, we propose to transfer the service currently provided at Linden Lodge at Nottingham City Hospital to the Regional Rehabilitation Centre.

To what extent do you support or oppose the transfer of the service at Linden Lodge at Nottingham City Hospital to the NHS Rehabilitation Centre?

Question Title

* 4. If you have any comments about the transfer of Linden Lodge, please provide them in the comment box below.

Question Title

* 5. The NHS Rehabilitation Centre would be located at the Stanford Hall Rehabilitation Estate near Loughborough. The 360-acre countryside estate hosts the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre, which provides rehabilitation facilities for military personnel.

The Defence Medical National Rehabilitation Centre would continue to operate independently and prioritise military rehabilitation, while a regional rehabilitation centre would provide treatment for NHS patients only. NHS patients would be able to benefit from the state-of-the-art facilities that the DNRC has (for example the hydrotherapy pool, the gait analysis system and the Computer Aided Rehabilitation Environment).

The location would provide peaceful, tranquil surroundings for NHS patients to focus on their rehabilitation. 

Do you think treating NHS patients on the same site as military personnel will be suitable?

Question Title

* 6. If you wanted to visit patients at the NHS Rehabilitation Centre, how easy would this be for you?

A regional rehabilitation service as part of the NHS Rehabilitation Centre development would be situated on the Stanford Hall Rehabilitation Estate at Stanford Hall near Loughborough.

Question Title

* 7. To reduce the travel impact for relatives, friends and carers, it is proposed that the NHS Rehabilitation Centre would provide free family accommodation with three family rooms available, free parking as well as super-fast broadband to enable patients to keep in touch with their families via communication channels such as FaceTime and Skype. Discussions are also taking place around enhancing local public transport. 

Do you feel that the factors listed above (i.e. family rooms, free parking & super-fast broadband) would help reduce the impact of increased travel time that some might face?

Question Title

* 8. What do you think the benefits are of being located on the Stanford Hall Rehabilitation Estate?

Question Title

* 9. What do you think the issues are of being located on the Stanford Hall Rehabilitation Estate?

Question Title

* 10. The NHS Rehabilitation Centre will take a fresh and innovative approach to rehabilitation, putting the patient at the centre of care. 

· It would be staffed by a multi-disciplinary team consisting of rehabilitation consultants, orthopaedic consultants, other speciality consultants (e.g. for cancer treatment), therapy assistants, physiotherapists, mental health nurses, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, social workers and other professionals as needed. 

· There would be a focus on occupational and vocational rehabilitation to help people get back to work.

· Each patient would be assigned a dedicated person (a clinical case manager) to coordinate their care throughout – from referral through to discharge.

· There would be an increase in the number of hours of therapy per patient per week (both one-to-one and group sessions), with patients being able to spend their additional time on the rehabilitation estate supported by occupational and vocational therapists.

· Patients would have access to facilities such as a gym, hydrotherapy pool and a system  to help patients practice their mobility and balance on a range of different surfaces.
What are your thoughts about the care that patients would receive at the NHS Rehabilitation Centre?

Question Title

* 11. What are your thoughts about the range of health and social care professionals that patients would have access to at the NHS Rehabilitation Centre?

Question Title

* 12. We recognise that it is important that a patient’s mental wellbeing is equally considered alongside their physical rehabilitation. It is therefore essential that proposals for the NHS Rehabilitation Centre take mental health, particularly helping patients to avoid feelings of isolation and boredom, into consideration. This will be done in relation to:

· The way in which clinical and other staff will help patients create an environment of support, helping to minimise any feelings of social isolation. 

· Making assessment of patient’s mental health part of ongoing assessments at least three times a week.

· Support provided by a mental health nurse.

· The design of the social facilities and use of the grounds. Evidence suggests that ‘green spaces’ are linked to improvements in patient wellbeing, mental health, levels of stress and positive behaviours.

Based on the information above, what are your thoughts on the approach to managing the mental wellbeing of patients during their time at the NHS Rehabilitation Centre?

Question Title

* 13. Do you have any other comments that you would like to make with regard to the development of the NHS Rehabilitation Centre?
