What we do at an assessment?

Our client will be interviewed / assessed to establish their needs / goals. This may be carried out in the patient's home, in the clinic at Moseley Hall hospital, by video link or phone, carers/family are encouraged to join with the patients consent.


If following this screen assessment, the patient is deemed as non-urgent then they will be placed on the waiting list. (Please contact the team for the up to date waiting time).

Our patients and their carers and families are the reason we're here, so we want to hear your views about the Trust and our services.
