Welcome to the Gilmerton Neurological Care Centre

The Gilmerton Neurological Care Centre (GNCC) believes in giving people with neurological condition and brain injury the best possible opportunity to change and grow as individuals, discovering and re-discovering ways back into a fulfilling life.

We work in close partnership with NHS neuro-rehabilitation services, Headway Services, Anne Rowling MS Rehabilitation centre, ECAS, CARDS, local Health and Social Care partners to provide long-term care for those patients who no longer need to be in hospital but require slow stream rehabilitation or on-going assessment to determine long-term needs. A Rehabilitation Therapy Programme based on the individual’s care needs is created together, listening to what is important to the patient and setting up joint goals.

The care team is led by experienced and qualified Nurses, with a wider Multi-Disciplinary Team including Physiotherapists and NHS Lothian neuro-rehabilitation services. The service is supported with enhanced GP input and other healthcare specialists as required.

All areas of our Centre are comfortable and friendly, and patients have a choice of sociable or quiet communal spaces to relax with each other or welcome family and friends. Every patient room is semi en-suite and you can make it feel even cosier with personal touches such as cherished pictures, soft furnishings and mementos.

There are two lounges for communal use and we encourage service users to enjoy their time in company. There is one dinning room and we encourage service users to have their meals there.

Everyone is encouraged to enjoy the lovely gardens and outside spaces.

There is something enjoyable and stimulating for everyone to enjoy each day. Our range of activities and events at GNCC is designed for all interests and abilities to encourage people to stay active and involved.
