SMTN Rehabilitation Prescription

Rehabilitation Prescription

Patients with rehabilitation needs at Southmead MTC can expect the creation and delivery of a bespoke patient Rehabilitation Prescription (RP). This document supports transitions of care and documentation of rehabilitation needs / expectations advocated by a number of national clinical reference groups and best practice guidance (NICE, BOAST and BSPRM guidelines). The RP can sometimes be referred to as a Rehabilitation Plan. The Southmead MTC RP provides a platform for explaining the injuries, management and rehabilitation trajectory for patients after Major Trauma. It also aids continuity of care when patients are transferred home or to their local hospitals or rehabilitation facilities, sharing clinical and rehabilitation information and supporting provision of a handover of care.
