The clinical review team were asked to examine the clinical case for change underpinning the proposals for the National Rehabilitation Centre. The National Rehabilitation Centre includes a regional clinical facility and national research and education hubs in state-of-the-art facilities on the Department of Defence Stanford Hall Estate. The review covered the clinical model, including the workforce plan, agreed referral criteria and clinical pathways for patients with rehabilitation needs. The case for change provided an overview of existing facilities across the East Midlands Trauma Network and highlighted gaps in capacity regionally as well as the breadth of rehabilitation to meet patient needs across complexities that are seen in major trauma centres. The East Midlands Clinical Senate was pleased to be able to assist in the developmental stages of this work.
