Our medical rehabilitation day units at the University Hospital of North Tees and the University Hospital of Hartlepool are staffed by expert teams of doctors, nurses and support staff offering a range of clinics.
Our teams will listen to you and make you feel comfortable to put you at ease during your appointment.
The modern units provide patients with various clinics:
- TIA clinics for patients who have suffered a transient ischaemic attack (mini stroke)
- falls clinics
- Parkinson’s disease clinics
- general medical ward discharge
- Tilt tests
We work with other departments to arrange tests, such as scans, blood tests and cardiology (heart) tests.
Patients are kept fully informed of exactly what treatment is being delivered and what any test are seeking to learn. One of our doctors will speak to you once we have your results and advise on the best course of action.
You will be referred to us by your GP, our accident and emergency department, the falls team or a hospital ward. We do not offer a self-referral service.
What do I do when I arrive for my appointment?
When you arrive for your appointment you should go to the reception desk to let them know you have arrived and they will direct you to the right area.
You may also have the opportunity to use one of our self check in kiosks as a convenient alternative to waiting for one of our reception team. You can do this by entering your details in to the kiosk and checking in.
Let us know if your GP practice or home address has changed
During your appointment, if your GP practice has changed or you have moved address, please inform the healthcare specialist.
We run our clinics from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
We Make Every Contact Count
We understand that lots of different factors have an impact on our health and wellbeing – the physical environment in which we live, our homes, our jobs, our finances, our social networks, genetics, education and our behaviour (smoking, activity levels, our diet). It is important that we understand if there is anything else that we can do so support you to improve your health and wellbeing.
We encourage our staff to ‘make every contact count’ with you and that might mean that they ask you about your lifestyle – how much you move each day, if you smoke or even how well you are sleeping. We would encourage you to embrace those conversations and if you would like some further support to explore how you could start to make changes that could improve your lifestyle we will be here to help.
We have lots of useful information that our teams have pulled together in our Live Well section, that we hope you will find informative and useful.Live well resources Making Every Contact Count
