Further Details

The Oliver Zangwill Centre for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation (OZC) is part of Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust. We provide high quality rehabilitation for the individual cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs of people with acquired brain injury. The Centre offers a unique (to the UK) holistic and intensive assessment and therapy programme.

We also aim to meet the needs of families of brain injured people.

Our ultimate aim is to promote the maximum level of :

> understanding the consequences of brain injury

> independent functioning in the home and community

> productive work

In partnership with clients, families and other services and through our links with the Medical Research Council and the NHS Research & Development Initiative, we seek to apply the latest research findings, evaluate our service and investigate ways to improve neuropsychological rehabilitation.
