Overview
Inpatient Services

For patients who have tried all the other available treatment and are still very affected by their symptoms we have a three week inpatient rehabilitation program:
Our inpatient program is “multidisciplinary” meaning it involves assessment and treatment from professionals with different expertise:

  • Nursing staff trained in physical and mental health
  • Psychological therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Psychiatry

Through 1:1 assessments with different professionals, and weekly team meetings involving the patients, we aim to get a good understanding of your symptoms, how they affect you and how you understand them.
Part of the assessment involves us getting to understand you as an individual, because these symptoms are complex and can be affected by lots of different aspects of a person’s history. We will challenge you to try different techniques and learn new skills, to enable you to manage your symptoms more effectively.

We will challenge you to try different techniques and learn new skills, to enable you to manage your symptoms more effectively. By the time the three weeks are over we hope that your symptoms will have improved, your ability to manage the activities of daily life will have improved, and you will have confidence that you can continue to recover at home.

Overview

Inpatient Service

The inpatient neurorehabilitation programme is based at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton. Patients are initially assessed at our multidisciplinary team assessment clinic at which point we identify their suitability for inpatient rehabilitation, review their history and diagnosis, and identify clear therapy goals.
We have 8 beds in our neuropsychiatry inpatient programme at Queen Mary’s.

  • 4 Beds are for patients with acquired brain injury / degenerative conditions.
  • 4 Beds are for patients with FND.

The treatment approach is multidisciplinary and professionals include:

Physiotherapist, Occupational therapists, Neuropsychologists, Speech and Language therapists, Specialist Nursing, Neuropsychiatry

In addition to these disciplines, we have regular input from rehabilitation, urology and neurology consultants.

A combination of the above therapies is tailored to each patient’s needs. This holistic approach seeks to treat every patient using the bio-psycho-social model.  Therapy goals are different for each person and are identified by patients. Often these include improving mobility, increasing independence with specific tasks, managing pain, as well improving fatigue and mood management.
The average length of stay on the ward is between 6-12 weeks. Prior to discharge an on-going management plan is formulated to support the transition back into the community. This may involve referral to additional services such as community rehabilitation and outpatient follow up.

Overview

Outpatient Services

  • We run weekly neurology-led outpatient clinics for people with suspected FND or those who have an established diagnosis of FND who are seeking treatment. The neurology team who run these clinics have a specialist interest in FND as well as in neurological disorders in general. Our clinic predominantly sees people with functional movement and sensory symptoms. People with possible or confirmed dissociative seizures/non-epileptic attacks are usually seen with our specialist epilepsy service by consultant colleagues who link through to our treatment services and who can conduct appropriate specialist diagnostic assessments when needed. Our aim is to provide people with a diagnosis which is explained clearly, and then with advice regarding treatment. We then try to either provide this treatment within our own team or to refer on to other services to provide treatment.
  • We run a monthly workshop for people newly-diagnosed with FND. Neurology consultants and others who have made the diagnosis of FND can refer people who are interested to this workshop. The workshop consists of educational talks about FND from Professor Edwards, Dr Niruj Agrawal (consultant neuropsychiatrist), Ms Kate Holt (specialist neurophysiotherapist) and Dr Sarah Cope (neuropsychologist) and a person with FND who has been through treatment in our service. There is then an opportunity to ask questions and share information.
  • A proportion of people with functional movement problems are suitable for intensive brief physiotherapy treatment – Dr Glenn Nielsen (specialist neurophysiotherapist) and Ms Kate Holt deliver this treatment. We have developed this treatment over the past 5 years, publishing outcome studies and have recently been granted funds from the National Institute for Health Research to lead a multicentre UK clinical trial of this intervention.
  • Specialist neuropsychologists with specific expertise and interest in FND offer 1:1 and group psychological therapy. Much of this work relates to the treatment of dissociative seizures/non-epileptic attacks but some people with other FND symptoms can also benefit from such intervention.

Referral Process

Referrals to the Walton Centre are made from primary or secondary care. If you have neurological symptoms which you think might be suggestive of FND, referral to any of the Walton Centre Neurologists at the most convenient hospital can be made by your GP or other medical team. You will then be seen in an outpatient clinic and assessed and a plan will be made as to whether any tests are required. Once an established diagnosis is made, your neurologist will discuss the options with you. There is a monthly Multidisciplinary team meeting where the Neurologist can discuss patients they have seen if the diagnosis or best course of action is not clear. The team will offer advice in order to ensure that they receive the most appropriate and helpful support within the available services.

Overview

Outpatient Services

The predominant therapeutic approach is individual Psychodynamic Interpersonal Therapy, although we also offer individual Cognitive Behavioural Therapy where appropriate.

Typical referrals include:

people with symptoms that appear to be due to neurological illness (e.g., non-epileptic seizures, paralysis, movement difficulties, sensory disturbance) but which have been diagnosed as functional by a neurologist following appropriate investigation;

Overview

Outpatient Services

At present we have part of the time of a Consultant Neuropsychiatrist, who offers assessment/diagnosis, psychiatric treatments and referral, and part of the time of a Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist and a Clinical Psychologist who offer assessment/diagnosis and MBCT (mindfulness-based cognitive therapy), and we have the possibility of referral to our local rehab Physiotherapy team. As appropriate, referrals can also be made to out-of-county specialist FND services.
The Psychological Medicine Department in Oxford is unique in the UK in the degree to which it is integrated and works side by side with medical and surgical services.
We aspire to transform the care delivered by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) by integrating psychological and psychiatric care into all aspects of medical and surgical treatment. We do this directly through integration of our clinicians into many of the services the Trust provides, and indirectly through teaching, training, and influencing the culture of the organisation.
We aim to add value to the care that the Trust provides, by improving patient outcomes, patient experience and patient safety and by improving efficiency.
Our philosophy is integration: integration with the clinical services in which we work; integration of disciplines (psychiatry and psychology); and integration with the University.
Oxford Psychological Medicine (through Oxford University Hospitals, the University of Oxford, an NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care, and membership of the Academic Health Sciences Network) is a leading academic and clinical resource for the integration of psychiatry and psychology into medical care.

Referral Process

We accept referrals from Consultant Neurologists working in Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals. The referral route for diagnosis by a Consultant Neurologist is usually through your GP, and or other hospital doctors following admission or emergency treatment.

After someone is referred to our service, they are initially contacted by post and asked to fill in a questionnaire. After questionnaires have been returned and received by the team (we provide prepaid envelopes), patients are added to our waiting list. When patients reach the top of the waiting list they are contacted by telephone or letter to make an appointment to see a therapist.
