Further Details

Headway South East London, North West Kent offers a variety of services to survivors of brain injury and stroke. We also offer support to their families and carers.

Our Early Intervention Service is located within King's College Hospital London and works in conjunction with the Neuro Team. It accepts referrals of patients after traumatic brain injury from the 3 Neuro wards via the MDT discharge planning team. We inform and advise on pathways for individuals and families and, following discharge, support individuals and families for a smooth transition back into the community. For those in need of input from clinical rehabilitation, we monitor until such time as it can be determined if our community services are required.

In conjunction with King's College Hospital, we run a clinic, led by a senior neurology nurse and supervised by consultant neurosurgeon. The clinic reviews previous patients of King's who have been discharged, but also offers itself to clients of Headway by referral only. The clinic also has neuropsychology input.

Headway South East London/North West Kent offers localised psychosocial rehabilitation throughout our area of SE London / NW Kent at 3 locations:
Abbeywood - covering the local authority or areas of Greenwich, Bexley, Lewisham, Dartford Swanley and Gravesend; Bromley - covering the local authority areas of Bromley and Croydon; and Southwark - covering the local authority areas of Southwark and Lambeth. This service offers our members the opportunity to work on daily living skills, memory work, confidence building and motivation in an environment that is shared by people with similar experiences. We have the support of the local adult education service for more structured activities, but the emphasis of this programme is based on a social rehab approach.

We offer two carer and family support services: Every second Wednesday of the month for carers only; and bi-monthly for carers and families (CAMEO CLUB)

We also provide some community support and vocational rehabilitation services (see website link)
