How our service can help you
We are an inpatient unit with 15 beds providing rehabilitation and palliative care for any patient registered with a Cambridgeshire GP. We have therapists working within the ward team during the week, and all nursing staff are trained in moving and handling, and leading exercises in strength and balance and chair based movements. GP cover is provided for clinical support seven days a week and we accept referrals from acute hospitals and community teams as required.
On admission, people are assessed by the ward team, goals identified and discharge planning started. These goals are then reviewed daily by the team and progress discussed at the weekly multidisciplinary meeting. At all times there is a registered nurse available to discuss any plans or concerns you may have.
Patients and their families are expected to take an active part in the patient's journey whilst on Welney Ward to achieve the best outcome possible. If required, referrals are made to other professionals/agencies for support and to facilitate a safe discharge.
