About Us“They don’t treat you like a patient, they treat you like a person”
Mike, Alan’s son. Alan had locked-in syndrome.
There is something very different about the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability. We don’t just treat people with profound disabilities, we care for them as individuals, creating care plans that resonate with them on a personal level, and offering practical and emotional support to them and their families every step of their journey.
Founded in 1854, and set in picturesque grounds in Putney, we are the oldest independent hospital and medical charity in the UK, not to mention one of the most respected.
Balancing traditional practice with specialist therapies and life changing technologies, our work makes that vital difference to the lives of profoundly disabled adults with acquired brain injuries and degenerative neurological conditions such as Huntington’s disease.
We can make this difference because:
- We assess accurately and treat holistically
- We make things personal
- We all work under one roof
- We don’t do things by halves
- We look to tomorrow
- We are a community within a community
Known as a ‘place of choice’, we are respected worldwide as an authority on neuro-disability care, influencing policy makers, medical professionals and commissioners. More importantly, we restore people’s hope and give them reasons to smile.
