Our short-term rehabilitation service offers community based physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy to housebound residents with a Harrow GP in a timely manner to prevent admission to hospital.

The team also has assistant practitioners (with generic nursing skills) and rehabilitation assistants who work autonomously to carry out mobility assessments – indoors and outdoors.
 

Who we see

The team provide ongoing exercise or functional therapy post-assessment to help patients live as independently as possible.

Our speech and language therapists work out of Northwick Park Hospital, and the team also works closely with other clinicians in both health and social care and voluntary sector to develop the service to offer holistic care.

Harrow integrated care provides services to Harrow CCG and is split into three locality teams.
