Traumatic Brain Injury Outpatient Clinic 

Brain Injury Clinic

We run dedicated follow up clinics for brain injured patients, either following discharge from hospital or the emergency department.  The patients are initially seen by a consultant and often have complex neurobehavioural and neurophysical needs requiring ongoing care and support.  We also initiate referrals to other neuro-specialist services and have a dedicated neuropsychologist working within our team.

Conditions treated

  • Traumatic brain injury (suspected)
  • Subarachnoid haemorrhage
  • Hypoxic-Ischaemic brain injury

Services

We currently run three clinics for this group of patients.

All patients have access to a clinical nurse specialist with a dedicated clinic.  Our neuropsychologist can offer outpatient cognitive and behavioural feedback and rehabilitation, and support for emotional difficulties that occur after brain injury.

Patients will continue to be supported in the nurse-led follow up clinic until they can be discharged into the sole care of their GP.

 Patient testimonials

"TBI is very isolating, and I feel much less anxious about my new difficulties now that I have been able to discuss them with specialists. They have also been able to refer me on to other specialists for my physical symptoms."
