Further information

We specialise in the treatment of patients with complex physical and cognitive impairments, challenging behaviours and neuropsychiatric disorders resulting from a brain injury. We offer comprehensive assessment, rehabilitation and therapy. Some patients at have been detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 (amended 2007) or are here under a Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) order.


There are two units on our Frenchay site: Frenchay Brain Injury Rehabilitation Unit (BIRU) South and Frenchay Brain Injury Rehabilitation Unit (BIRU) North. Our consultant-led inter-disciplinary team work across both units and work seamlessly together to ensure every team member is working towards the same practical, realistic goals and that all therapies are focused on the areas that will enable patients to achieve those clearly defined and agreed goals.


We are experienced at managing people with PEGS and patients in low states of arousal who require a SMART (Sensory Modality Assessment and Rehabilitation Technique) assessment.
