Medway Neurological Network is campaigning for a Medway Neurological Hub, as outlined below:
➢ A one-stop centre for all with neurological conditions, to include: Neurologists/ GPs/ Neuro-Nurses trained for assessment/ referral/ signposting
➢ Treatments, e.g. neuro-physiotherapy, speech therapy, counselling, integrated personal care plan services, dietary advice etc.
➢ Therapies, e.g. Pilates, Exercise, Singing, possibly hydro-therapy
➢ Neurological charities to provide information & support
➢ Could be incorporated into Medway Model.
A summary of the Medway Neurological Network (MNN) Neuro-Hub proposal can be viewed HERE
This proposal chimes with the MCCG policy of using hubs in the Medway Model and also chimes with the need to reduce out-patient care at Medway Maritime Hospital in order to free-up parking for the new Urgent Care Centre.
The Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (MCCG), has included this proposal for a Medway Neurological Hub in the specification for the current re-commisioning of Medway Adult Community Health Services. Medway Neurological Network would be pleased to engage with any and all contractors that are in the process of bidding for this contract.
