Uphill Ward

The aim of the unit is to provide a goal orientated rehabilitation programme. This will be a planned short stay admission offering coordinated assessment, treatment and management from a specialised team.


The team will comprise of nurses, doctors, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, therapy assistant, speech and language therapist and social workers. Patients are expected to participate in their rehabilitation program and will be expected to dress daily, our team will promote patients independence in readiness for them to leave the hospital setting. There will be an expectation that some patients may require continuing rehab/follow up in the community setting.

Discharge planning will be an integral part of the rehabilitation program that will commence on admission to the unit leading to timely and safe discharges
