Neuro Rapid Response for people in crisis

We offer rapid assessment for patients whose behavioural presentation and/or cognitive function has deteriorated and is difficult to manage in their home or their community setting. Our specialist MDT offer rapid stabilisation and intensive therapy in a safe environment, facilitating a person's return to community once the crisis period has subsided.

How we can support your patient 

People with an acquired brain injury or those with progressive neurological disorders, such as dementia Rapid response web image or  Huntington's disease (HD) can experience periods of challenging behavioural disturbance as a result of their condition, posing a risk to themselves or others.

If a person's agitated presentation is increasing the level of supervision and care required to support them in their existing acute or community setting, we can offer a short-term placement where our expert MDT and bespoke environments can work with people to transform behaviours that challenge into patient engagement.

Based at our Northampton site, our neuropsychiatric service means that patients have access to over 140 acres of green space, onsite cafes and recreational and vocational facilities.

  1. Acquired brain injury (including those with organic brain injury)
