Our stroke and acquired brain injury recovery clinic is open to children and young people from birth to 16 years of age who have had an acquired brain injury (this may be due to events around the time of birth or later in childhood and may include stroke, traumatic brain injury, meningitis, encephalitis, hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy or other conditions). The clinic sees children from soon after their brain injury through to many years beyond, as we know that needs and priorities change over time.
The focus of the clinic is to address the expressed needs of young people and their parents/carers in living their lives as independently as possible. This may be in home, school or leisure activities. The clinic offers specialist consultation, advice and support and we liaise with your local therapy and medical teams when necessary. We can also make onward referrals where required.
Referrals to this service need to be made in writing, by a medical professional (hospital or community consultant, or GP). Children and young people do not need to be patients of Evelina London to be referred, nor under the care of other specialist services at this hospital.
Please direct written referrals to:
