Working in Partnerships

Effective collaboration and partnership is fundamental to the way Shrewsbury Court Independent Hospital operates.

We work in collaboration with Patients, Family Members, Care Managers, Placement Officers, Clinical Commissioning Groups and other funding authorities to deliver an outcome focused rehabilitation and recovery service which meets the needs and expectations of all stakeholders. We do this by ensuring that our care pathways remain flexible and responsive to changing patient needs in preparing them for return to the community.

We provide monthly Multidisciplinary Team Review Report to the professional stakeholders with an update of each patient’s progress. This reports are produced following Multidisciplinary Team ward rounds.

Our Referral Process

Our admissions criteria ensures that we can meet the clinical, psychological, social and care needs of any potential patient. Our referrals process includes a pre-admission assessment and direct liaison with the referring team.

Decisions of suitability are agreed by our MDT and communicated within five working days of assessment. Where possible, we encourage patient and referring teams to visit Shrewsbury Court Independent Hospital prior to admission.

We understand that finding a suitable placement for a patient can be a difficult experience for anyone. Our managers will be happy to guide you through our services and the referrals process.
