Piecing it together: neurorehabilitation and complex care in 2018 and beyond


This one day conference, to be held at the Ark Conference Centre in Basingstoke on Thursday 5th July 2018, is aimed at all those who work in the field of adult neuro-disability and neurological complex care in both community and hospital settings, including healthcare professionals, case managers, commissioners and legal counsel who want to learn more about the provision of neuro services, the interventions and techniques that are available together with an overview of what the future may look like for those living with neurological conditions. Bringing together a range of professionals from across medical, nursing, therapeutic and other disciplines, we will be looking at neurological conditions, services and care techniques to enhance rehabilitation and improve health and wellbeing.

Raphael Hospital Group featured on BBC Two

Written by RHG Comms on . Posted in Glenside News

The Raphael Hospital was featured in the BBC Two Horizon Programme: My Amazing Brain – Richard’s War. Charting the story of Richard Gray and devoted wife, Fiona, the programme shows the full journey to recovery with interviews from key individuals involved in Richard’s care and treatment. We are fortunate to have been a part of Richard’s recovery, as noted by Director, Dr. Gerhard Florschutz. The programme is now available on BBC iPlayer here.   Synopsis Horizon follows the story of Richard Gray and his remarkable recovery from a life changing catastrophic stroke. The film shows – in extraordinary detail – the rarely seen journey back to recovery. Recorded by his documentary filmmaker wife Fiona over four years ‘Richard’s War’ shows, in uncompromising detail, the hard work of recovery. Initially bed bound and unable to do anything, including speak the initial outlook was bleak, yet occasionally small glimmers of hope emerged. Armed always with her camera Fiona captures the moment Richard moves his fingers for the first time, and then over months she documents his struggle to relearn how to walk again. The story also features poignant footage delivered in a series of flashbacks – in which we see and hear Richard at his professional best. He was a peacekeeper with the United Nations, immersed in the brutal war in Sarajevo, Bosnia. We also hear from the surgeons and clinicians who were integral to Richard’s remarkable recovery, from describing life-saving surgery, high-risk reconstructive surgery, to intensive rehabilitation programmes that push the former soldier to his limits. As the film starts Fiona asks “will Richard, my Richard still be there?” By the end the answer is clear.
