Who the ward is for

Patients who have had a stroke and need stroke rehabilitation.

About the ward

Lister Ward provides intensive rehabilitation for patients who have had a stroke. Staff working on the ward include nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and rehabilitation assistants.

Facilities include:

  • A ward-based gym
  • An intensive therapy programme for rehabilitation
  • An 'activities of daily living' kitchen and therapy room
  • A speech and language treatment room.

The rehabilitation programmes are tailored to meet the individual needs of the patients. Case conferences will be held with family and patients and the team meet weekly to discuss the progress and goals of each patient.

If a patient becomes unwell or is not responding to rehabilitation they may need to be transferred to another ward for care that better meets their needs.
