What everyone should know…

For anyone who has survived an acquired brain or spinal injury or has a complex neurological condition, the ability to choose how and where they live can sometimes be limited. For those living in or within reach of Hertfordshire or Gloucester, our centres provide superb accommodation and specialist services for people with neurological disabilities or terminal illness.

Although privately owned and managed by Ramsay Health Care UK, most of its residents are publicly funded either by the NHS, Continuing Health Care or Social Services.

We always maintain a high ratio of registered nurses and care staff to the residents. The number of nursing and care staff on duty each day aims to be appropriate to meet the varying needs of our residents.

Each centre has skilled registered nurses on duty 24 hours a day, supported by highly trained care staff with the service overseen by experienced clinical managers.
